I've been working with some 7th grade volunteers from the Phoenixville Area Middle School to develop a survey about students' media use in general, and their use of the Colonial Theatre in particular. We used a survey created by Common Sense Media as the basis of this project and added our own specific questions about the Colonial. A parent survey is available as well, through Common Sense Media (the parent survey does not include questions specifically about the Colonial). Links to both are below.
I expect the survey results will provide enlightening, and surprising, information about how the media fits into students' lives, and how the Colonial does, or does not, fit into that media life. The future preservation of the Colonial depends on cultivating audiences who want to connect, participate, and contribute to the Colonial. The more we know our audiences and can meet their needs, the stronger our future will be. So, thank you in advance for helping us plan for our future!
This survey is intended for students in 6th – 12th grades.
