Welcome Parents and Students,
My name is Allie Pruett and I am one of two teachers teaching English III this year. I am a graduate of Texas A&M University and am currently finishing up graduate school where I will earn my master's of education. I am in my 21st year of teaching.
English III seeks to explore the major periods of American literature from the Puritan era to twentieth-century writing, as well as some selected works from world literature. The primary goal of the course is to help students develop and improve their ability to closely read, comprehend, and analyze complex texts and to effectively and critically write about what they have read.
Of particular note is our effort this year to create a positive digital footprint for all students enrolled in the course. All students have been given the opportunity to create a website that they will use to cultivate and write about their interests, as well as curate writing from class. We will be using their websites throughout the year. I encourage you to ask to ask your child about their website so that you can follow their progress. Currently, the website can only be accessed when the student is logged in to their TISD account. The website is currently not accessible to anyone who is not logged in.
