Effects of Contradictions Strategy on Creative Expression Performance of Fourth Grade Students – Art Stream

Kathem Hussain Gazal, Akram Mohamed Kareem


This research seeks to identify the effects of the contradictions strategy on the creative expression of fourth grade students – Art Stream.


  1. The two researchers applied the partially controlled experimental method to a sample consisting of (65) students divided by random drawing into two groups: an experimental group or Class B consisting of (32) students and control group or Class D consisting of (33) students. The researchers matched between the two groups by the following variables: age of students calculated in months, parents' educational level, last year's Arabic language grades and creative expression grades prior to the experiment. The researchers drew up (60) behavioral goals out of the topics, which were taught in the experiment and prepared typical teaching plans for the two groups. They also chose a series of consecutive tests as a tool for measuring the level of students after teaching each topic and used appropriate statistical methods to draw the results. At the end of the experiment, the researchers came to the following results:


The students of the experimental group who were taught by the contradictions strategy outmatched the students of the control group who were taught by regular methods.


The researchers recommended that it is necessary to use the teaching method based on the contradictions strategy and hold courses for teachers to train them on it. They also suggested conducting a study similar to this one on students from other grades.
