This research is conducted in the style of a synthesis, in which selected articles are analyzed to examine various methods of creative teaching and their implications on student learning. Often, teachers rely on textbooks and worksheets to deliver lessons; however, this technique neglects to meet the diverse learning needs of each student in the classroom. Creative teaching strategies, such as dance, creative movement, drama, and creative writing, are considered some of the innovative ways for students to be presented with content material. Research reveals that not only do students respond well to these teaching strategies, they are also more inclined to express their own forms of creativity within the environment of the classroom.
