Luqman Rababah, Ala’Eddin Abdullah Ahmed Banikalef


The present study aimed at finding out the valuing strategies used by EFL teachers to enhance student’s creativity in writing. The present study made use of a qualitative approach to obtain data from the Discovery School students in Amman, Jordan and to determine the answers to the research questions. This study was carried out in the one hundred branches of Discovery Schools (DSs) located in Amman, Jordan for the Academic year 2018/2019. Using a convenience sample, ten EFL teachers were chosen as a sampling for the current study. The present study conducted interviews with EFL teachers and observed them. The participants were selected from the first secondary cycle as the cycle holds significance. To check the trustworthiness and credibility of qualitative data, the researcher utilized two strategies, triangulation and member check. The interview data analysis showed that eight teachers believed that using the strategy was important. On a negative note, the results from the observation showed that only three teachers actually employed this strategy among their teaching techniques. Further research is recommended on the same topic in different settings.
