Session Abstract:  This research study evaluated the implementation of Active Learning Literacy Charts as an instructional approach and its impact on student reading achievement and motivation in grades K-3. The study included 78 K-3 elementary teachers and 1,429 K-3 students from six Title I elementary campuses. Data was gathered using Norm and Criterion-based assessments as well as a survey, background questionnaire and additional archival data. Multiple statistical analysis was conducted to gain insight on this particular evaluation. Results indicated that Active Learning Literacy Charts had a positive impact on both student achievement and motivation in grades K-3 in all aspects of the study. Implications included the continued need for active learning and active literacy in elementary grades. Emphasis on increasing awareness and education includes that of professional development for today's elementary literacy teacher and providing multiple opportunities to enhance the developmental aspects of an early reader.
