Abstract
Along with the No Child Left Behind legislation, the role of an educator in public schools was encouraged to be mindful of the various learning styles and ways in which to motivate students of all achievement levels. Background music can be used as a tool for motivating and focusing students. It is imperative that teachers find effective and creative ways for assisting students with their ability to focus for periods of time. In this study, the subjects who listened to the background music while writing, stayed on task and were motivated to complete the assignment. Once the activity was competed, the students were asked to fill out a survey on the writing activity. The result was positive and demonstrated that our hypothesis was correct.
