This study explores how using songs during ESL instruction could lead to productive vocabulary gains in 2nd grade English language learners. Key influences included Medina (1990) and Beck, McKeown, and Kucan (2002). This study included a "control group" given traditional vocabulary instruction, and "experimental group" exposed to vocabulary instruction incorporating songs. Three sets of vocabulary were presented in conjunction with three stories. Pre-tests, end-of-story oral assessments, and post-tests were administered. Most of the findings were inconclusive; however, students given instruction using songs felt more confident in their vocabulary knowledge at the conclusion of the study
