Each Session in the Project starts with the aims of the sessions, as well as a statement that the group will be working on in that session. These statements are called RARPA statements, RARPA stand for Recognising and Recording Progress and Achievement, and is a tool used to measure learners/participants understanding.
We use RARPA scales to understand how the young people feel they have progressed in their understanding during any given session.
Session 1 “I understand how Hamilton House is used and can explain the services it provides”
Session 2 “I can use lyricism to express the positivity of Hamilton House”
Session 3 “I can devise concepts for an arts mural to improve Hamilton House”
Session 4 “I can listen to artists pitching, give constructive feedback and contribute my ideas.”
Session 6 “I can create my own positive self portrait using stencil arts”
Session 7 “I can complete the transformation of Hamilton House”
