SCAMPER-based activities were administered to the experimental group for eight weeks, whereas the control group was taught in the traditional way. Results of the study indicated that there was a statistically significant difference between the mean scores of the experimental and control group in the post administration of the Creative Speaking Skills in favor of the experimental group.
