Abstract


The study is aimed to investigate how creative thinking skills can be improved by visualizing narrative story through photostory. The study employed a qualitative case study design. The data were gained from groups‘ photostory including story mapping and story board, adapted from http://pjnicholson.com/compappmyp_part2/LessonPlans/PhotoStoryLP.html,investigating what creative students do developed by Brookhart (2010), from collection of samples of selected students‘ texts analyzed in terms of the schematic structures and language features developed by Gerot and Wignell (1994); Derewianka (2004); Christie and Derewianka (2008) and SFL developed by Halliday and Matthiessen (2004) as cited in Eggins (2004), and from the questionnaire conducted by 41 students after the teaching programs. The findings revealed that photostory was successful in improving creative thinking skills by employing story mapping and story board before the story was visualized using photostory. The selection of texts has succeeded in improving the characteristics of creative thinking; reasonable, productive and nonevaluative.
