Welcome parents and students to the 22-23 school year!
My name is Lisa Wilson and I will be your teacher for American Literature and Composition OR 10th Literature & Composition.
I'm so excited you are all in my class!
Some things you will need to know about your class and me:
1. The American Literature and Composition course will use a variety of resources (print and digital) to deliver
the content - American Literature. This class will help improve your reading abilities, writing abilities,
speaking abilities, and increase your vocabulary; it will also, hopefully, give you an appreciation of where
our literature comes from and how it has grown over the last several centuries. We will also use a couple
web-based resources (like NewsELA & Commonlit).
**This is an important course since at the end you will be required to take the Georgia Milestones
2. The 10th Literature and Composition course will use a variety of resources (print and digital) to deliver the
content - World Literature. This class will help improve your reading abilities, writing abilities,
communication, and increase your vocabulary; it will also, hopefully, give you an appreciation of literature
from places other than America. We will also use a couple web-based resources (like NewsELA &
3. I have high expectations for each of you.
I'm going to set a bar that I expect you to reach and when you do, I'm going to raise it.
I'm going to push you to be better today than you were the day before.
4. My job is to teach you.
Your job, students, is to do everything you can to learn.
That means you are doing your very best every...single...day.
You are actively participating in all assignments, you are actively researching, if necessary,
to learn skills, vocabulary, and grammar, and you are asking me questions to make sure
you understand what you are being asked to do/learn.
5. Finally, and this may be the most important thing, I am fabulous and you will learn to love me!😍
Below you will find ways to contact me, our syllabus, my schedule, and links to our Google Classroom.

We are going to have a great semester!
