Drawing for STEM Action Research

If you are a teacher or educator in an educational setting from Year 5 (Grade 6) to any age, I'd love you to take part in this action research which will contribute to a paper I'm writing called; 'Creativity, can it be Taught?' due to be released in 2019.

What I'd like to know is how effective my visualisation drawing exercises are at improving your students ability to conceptualise and create mental images to solve problems.

To take part, choose a time in your academic calendar when you can allocate five brief teaching sessions over a short period of time, (two weeks at the latest).

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I'm hoping to be able to demonstrate how creative exercises can affect teaching and learning in STEM subjects.
