This study aims to examine teacher's opinions on the contribution of learning outcomes for listening defined in the Ministry of National Education's Turkish course curriculum for the 6th, 7th and 8th grades to the development of creative thinking skills. Mixed methods research design was adopted in the study. As the quantitative part of the study, a questionnaire titled "Assessment of learning outcomes for listening" was prepared by the researcher and administered to 150 Turkish teachers working at 35 different schools. Interviews were held with 13 teachers about the contribution of learning outcomes for listening to the development of creative thinking skills. The quantitative data obtained from the interviews were analyzed using the content analysis method. The analysis was conducted using frequencies, arithmetic means and the Chi-Square test. The findings of the study revealed that the learning outcomes for listening defined in the secondary Turkish course curriculum contributed to the development of creative thinking skills of students. The gender, seniority, alma mater and educational background of the teachers did not change the results. As a result of the interviews, four categories were identified: "listening outcomes and creativity", "creative thinking", "readiness level of students" and "development of thinking skills".
