Research shows that teachers have a problem of identifying the creative student. There is a need for teachers to become informed of the nature of the creative thinking process and the means of developing it. Thus, teachers' creative thinking processes must be developed, also. This study was undertaken to determine if through the method of bibliotherapy there would be a change in the creative thinking of teachers as measured by the Torrance Tests of Creative Thinking. Since no research is available in this area of creativity, this investigator holds that this study is unique in that field.
