The purpose of this study was to investigate the factors contributing to the success of an award-winning science teacher's creative teaching materials based on Amabile's componential model of creativity. We used a case study method. Data were collected through in-depth interviews as well as relevant documents for data triangulations. Interview transcripts were analyzed using a framework with three creative components: expertise, task motivation, and the creativity skills proposed by Amabile. It was found that (a) professional knowledge and skills can help increase creativity, (b) the use of creative skills can promote teaching, and (c) task motivation is a basic element in the expressing of creativity. The findings of this study conformed to Amabile's theory.
