One of the challenges of teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) abroad is the lack of state-of-the-art instructional materials. A solution to the scarcity of effective materials is the implementation of creative classroom activities that move beyond reliance on textbooks. These activities can enliven instruction, and can be developed using realia or other authentic materials from the target culture. In light of this, this book presents a study on creativity in teaching English as a foreign language. It discusses: (Creativity in Educational Program, Understanding Creativity, Creativity Thinking and Critical Thinking, Learning-Teaching Creativity and The Consensual Assesment Technique of Creativity).

Creativity in Educational Program Introductionst In the 21 century, creativity is more than an enhancement to life, it is an essential component. As technology becomes more powerful and accessible and as life becomes more complex, creative individuals will be needed to find solutions for problems related to health, environment, education and business. Pink (2005) argued that we are entering a new age where creativity is becoming increasingly important. In this conceptual age, we will need to foster and encourage right–directed thinking (representing creativity and emotion) over left–directed thinking (representing logical analytical thought) Here we turn logic on its head. Again this is just a way of breaking the mind away from just following the pattern of experience. It takes the mind into a fantasy world where we do not know what we will find. The barrier is judgement. We cannot carry that word into the realms of fantasy nor do we leave room for creativity. Of course we must eventually come out of this fantasy world and only then judge whatever ideas we have brought out with us. Reversing Logic asks you to consider what you think are facts and investigate what differences and advantages it would make if they were not facts. You could try to imagine what would be the case if the facts were totally wrong. Or you could try to modify the facts and see whether it now fits into the current situation better than the original one. This is only a stimulus for new ideas, nothing else.
