The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of the Animated-Literacy approach to reading instruction by analyzing the Comprehensive Test of Basic Skills scores taken at the conclusion of the school year. The subtests scaled scores of a first grade class that received Animated-Literacy reading instruction were compared to a previous class that did not receive this type of instruction to determine if there was a significant difference. A significant improvement was found in the Word Analysis subtest. No significant differences were found in the areas of Reading Vocabulary, Reading Comprehension or Total Reading.
