The research concluded the effectiveness of the proposed strategy in developing creative writing expression skills at the level of (fluency - flexibility - originality). Where the differences were statistically significant at a level of significance (0.01) in favor of the post application in the test of creative writing for first-grade intermediate pupils who were linguistically gifted، and the size of the impact of the strategy was large.
