    Hi, everyone! Welcome to 7th grade Social Studies with Mrs. Isley! I wish we could all meet in person, but for now we will be meeting virtually and making the most of school during a pandemic. This is not my main website for updates. Please navigate to my Google Site which I will link below in order to find the following helpful items!

    First, is a page all about me, click the links in the top right corner to navigate the pages. Then, you will find a page with announcements, this will be where I post any important updates or changes. Next, is the page for your assignments, I am planning to update this page WEEKLY so you (and your parents) can see everything that will be due that week without having to log into Canvas (although this page does not replace Canvas). There is a Student Portal and a Parent Portal. Each of these is chock full of helpful links that you can use to help you navigate the web more easily. Lastly, you will see a couple video tutorials. One for how to use my Google Site and the other for how to navigate Canvas. The Canvas video is much longer, but be sure to watch it in its entirety as it may answer any future questions you have. That's all for now! I look forward to a fantastic school year with you all. Hopefully, it will be safe for us to learn in person very soon!
