Positive teacher comments and student verbal creativity.

With the growing emphasis being placed upon the creatively gifted student and the field of creativity in general, teachers are increasingly being asked to help their students realize their creative potential. Considerable research has been published in the area of teaching creative thinking and problem solving within a workshop format. Additional research has focused upon the relationship between personality factors and creative ability. However, little, if any, research has envisioned the utilization of specific classroom procedures by teachers on a routine basis which would enhance the creative ability of the students in the program. A review of the research literature revealed teacher attitudes and suggested class- room environments that were shown to correlate with creative production in students, although no specific classroom procedure which could easily be used on a regular basis by teachers had been researched.
