<jats:p>This paper will argue that drama techniques can provide an excellent framework for developing students’ creative thinking. The first part of the paper will attempt to define what is meant by creativity in educational settings through discussion of the work of psychologists Kaufman, Beghetto, and Sternberg. It will focus specifically on the difference between BIG ‘C’ legendary creativity and little ‘c’ everyday creativity and how little ‘c’ creativity relates to discourse in the language classroom. Next, the author will discuss how some of the activities in the Torrance test of creativity (1996) share striking similarities with drama techniques. Lastly, some of these drama techniques will be briefly introduced in the final part of the paper.</jats:p>
