The effect of intervention strategies on the creative thinking skills of pre service teachers
Science teaching has not traditionally fostered creativity, yet it lends itself to imaginative problem solving and enquiry. This paper presents the results of a study in which a group of pre service teachers were exposed to creative thinking strategies within their normal science education course. Preliminary findings from this research indicate the value of these strategies in improving self concept, verbal fluency and originality of ideas. The effect of supportive class environments, however, should not be underestimated.
