Does Listening to Slow Tempo Classical Music During Independent Writing Affect Children's On-Task Performance?
McKnight, Rosemary
This project explored the effects of slow tempo classical music on children's on-task performance during independent writing. The project sample consisted of 24 students from a first grade classroom in the New York City Public School System. The students' on-task behavior was observed with and without use of slow tempo classical music playing, and writing samples were collected. The results indicated that slow tempo classical music had a positive effect on children's on-task behavior. Contains a 14-item bibliography. (Author/MM)
