Mantle Of The Expert Strategy Effectiveness In The Development Of
This study aimed at investigating the Effectiveness of Mantle of the
Expert in creative thinking Skills among the 7th
Graders. The study conducted on a sample of 7th
Graders at Kober Secondary Boys School and Upper Kober Elementary Girls
School. The study sample consisted of (100) students split into two
groups (experimental and control). The researcher adopting the Torrance
test for creative thinking the verbal image “A” by examining the tests

according to the integration between the strategies of the mantle of the
expert and role playing.
This study adopted quasi-experimental design. It included two groups
(experimental and controlled) in two branches (males and females) for
each group. The controlled group was taught by using the traditional
method whereas the experimental group by the mantle of the expert. The
data analyzed using (ANCOVA) test to measure the differences in the
development of creative thinking between the control and experimental
The Conclusions showed that there are statistically significant
differences in the mean scores of the creative thinking test due to the
way, gender and interaction between them.
Based on the Conclusions of the study, the researcher recommends the
need to use the mantles of the expert in the teaching of mathematics.
