Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of an integrated arts teaching style on students' spelling achievement. Subjects (N=63) were students in two third grade classes and two fourth grade classes placed into four pre-existing groups by the school district. Two control groups were taught a spelling lesson by their classroom teacher using a traditional teaching style and two experimental groups were taught the same lesson by the researcher, using an integrated arts approach. A pre-test, post-test design compared the mean scores for each group. Results indicated only marginal positive gains (p>.05) in favor of the integrated arts teaching style.
