Abstract

A low level of creative thinking ability is the main problem faced by primary school students. The aim of this study was to formulate an effective roleplay teaching method to improve primary school students’ creative thinking abilities. To this end, a quasi-experiment was carried out involving 31 students in a primary school. The result revealed that the roleplay method was proved to positively improve students’ creative thinking abilities. The creative thinking abilities of some students could be classified into moderate level, but those of the majority of students could be classified into the high level. The roleplay teaching method was proved to effectively improve the creative thinking abilities and proved to be significantly better than the conventional teaching method. This is evident in the increase in students' creative thinking ability scores.
