Teacher's Note

I worked with a group of colleagues at Arizona State University in the fall of 2011, under the supervision of Dr. Janel D. White-Taylor, to construct an extensive website meant to help teachers in developing a curriculum around the Sonoran Desert. This website, Sonoran Desert Explorers, is geared toward students in kindergarten through 3rd grade. My specific contributions to the website include the Fig Beetle page under the Insects section, the Cactus Wren page under the Birds section, the Velvet Mesquite page under the Vegetation section, and the Kindergarten - A Taste of the Sonoran Desert page under the Lesson Plans section. This website is structured to align with the learning theories of Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy, Constructivism, and Multiple Intelligence.
