Phase 1 design CBL draft model and set up CBL model

The problem based learning and the creativity theories were used in the construct of the CBL draft model

PBL was employed in CBL's draft model because ;

PBL can improve students' attitudes toward learning. Thus, as a pedagogical technique, problem‑based learning promotes the kinds of active learning that many educators advocate (Barr & Tagg, 1995) and students who acquired knowledge in the context of solving problems have been shown to be more likely to use it spontaneously to solve new problems than individuals who acquire the same information under more traditional methods of learning facts and concepts through lectures (Bransford, Franks, Vye, & Sherwood, 1989)

And also the following creativity theories are used to form CBL's draft model ;

Guilford (1956, 1959, 1960, 1986) considered creative thinking as involving divergent thinking, which emphasizes fluency, flexibility, originality, and elaboration.
Guilford, however, noted that creative thinking is not the same as divergent thinking, because creativity requires sensitivity to problems as well as redefinition abilities, which include transformations of thought, reinterpretations, and freedom from functional fixedness in driving unique solutions.

Torrance (1966, p. 6) Defined creativity as a process of becoming sensitive to problems, deficiencies, gaps in knowledge, missing elements, disharmonies, and so on; identifying the difficulty; searching for solutions, making guesses, or formulating hypotheses about the deficiencies: testing and retesting these hypotheses and possibly modifying and retesting them; and finally communicating

Because a case study is based on real life situations, inferences drawn from the research process allow deeper understanding of how study elements influence each other.
A case study approach was selected because it is impossible to separate the context of the study variables, as in this study, case study represents the best approach (Merriam, 1998).

The case study is designed to explore the process and environment that affect creative thinking skills in high school students by using a Phenomenography research methodology to set up the CBL draft model.
The variation(s) in processes and environments that emerged from this action research was used to inform redesign of CBL model.
Action research is a research methodology that is grounded in the practice of those undertaking the research. In action research, the researcher is a participant, and undertakes the research in order to critically reflect upon, and change his or her practice (Casrr & Kemmis 1989; Kember 2000). Action research is:
Concerned with social practice;
Aimed towards improvement;
A cyclical
