Introduction

  • Statement of the Problem
  • Review of Related Literature
  • Statement of the Hypothesis
statement of the problem
Statement of the Problem
  • In many schools across the country a need for motivating students to write is evident.

Evidence of that need is observed by teacher observations. As a result teachers often ask how can I motivate my students to write?

    • Students apprehension toward writing.
    • Students writing fewer and fewer words.
review of the literature
Review of the literature
  • Theorists
    • Gardner –Intelligences, which do not always reveal themselves in paper-and-pencil tests, can serve as basis for more effective educational methods.(Gardner 1998)
      • Multiple intelligences
        • Linguistic- involves sensitivity to spoken and written language; the capacity to use language to accomplish certain goals
        • Musical intelligence- involves skill in the performance, composition, and appreciation of musical patterns.
          • Connection- According to Howard Gardner musical intelligence runs in an almost structural parallel to linguistic intelligence.
review of the literature5
Review of the Literature
  • Piaget
    • Theorized that cognitive development proceeds four genetically determined stages (Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia 2009)
      • Sensorimotor, pre-operational, concrete, formal
        • Connection- Teachers should be aware that Writing has developmental stages which parallel cognitive development.

Review of the literature Current instructional methods
  • Interactive writing
    • In this process, students and teachers collaborate in the construction of text while building on prior knowledge.(Patterson, Schaller ,&Clemens(2008)
  • Guided writing
    • According to Box,(2002) The primary components of guided reading include modeling the thinking process that occurs in writing.
review of the literature prior research
Review of the literature Prior research
  • Commonality
    • Prior to research observations of student apprehension toward writing was apparent.
    • Researchers looking for a way to increase student motivation for writing.
    • Students like music.

Motivating students to write remains one of the most difficult obstacles that teachers must overcome.(Donohoe, & McNeely, (1999)

  • Many studies support music as a positive influence on writing. A study by Kariuki, & Honeycutt (1998) reported when [students] were exposed to music during writing assignments students showed an increase in writing output.
  • Music can be a motivational tool, act a stress reducer and have a calming effect and take away from the pressure of writing. (Black, 1993; Kariuki, & Honeycutt 1998; Donohoe, & McNeely, 1999; Israel 2004;

Review of the literature Pro’s and Con’s

    • Music makes a subject come alive and children do not know they are learning.(Prescott 1999)
    • Music improves literacy development; transferability of skills from one talent domain to another.(Piro 2009)

Con’s

At times the gains are not distributed equally because of factors such as music selection, culture, race/ethnicity, and at times gender. (Southgate, & Roscigno, 2009).
