Teresa M. Stevens

Ms. Stevens and her partners implement an interdisciplinary project that examines the geographical and cultural development of Asia through the study of biomes. While studying the organisms and climates of each biome and the way climate affects biodiversity, students learn about literary and cultural innovations in Asia. To enhance literacy skills and cultural understanding, students correspond with pen-pals who live in some of the Asian biomes. At the culmination of the project, students work collaboratively to create travel guides and oral presentations that entice guests to travel to their chosen biome.
