Welcome to 8th Grade GA Studies!
I am delighted to be your teacher this year, and I look forward to us maintaining a positive relationship for the duration of the year. We are #Road2100percent proficiency on the Georgia Milestone! Whoop Whoop! With hard work and dedication, together we can ensure the academic success of yourself and classmates. Let's dive in!
My name is Terrance Lewis. I am originally from the great city of Columbus, GA, where I attended Waddell Elementary, Midland Middle and graduated from Shaw High School. Furthermore, I graduated from The University of Alabama with a degree in social studies education. Roll Tide! This is my fourth year in the field of education but my second year at Aaron Cohn Middle School. I am truly excited to be your student’s teacher and look forward to working on the same team maximizing the academic achievement of your student.
I believe that education is a collaborative process, for it truly takes parents, students, and other stakeholders working together in order for the true value of education to be effective. With that being said, I believe that students should be challenged to move outside of their comfort zones to places where they are challenged respectfully by their peers who might carry a different perspective.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me. Go Bulldogs!

Students will be issued textbooks for this course. However, that text book will be digital and accessible with their Chromebooks. Students should be reading a few pages of this book each night to supplement the material we learn in class. I have also included a link to the GA Studies digital text. That book is also a great supplement to the digital text that will be assigned to each student. The chapters also end with a quiz that shows students sample test questions they may see on classroom assessments and the Georgia Milestone. The link is listed below.
