• Welcome to 7th grade Social Studies with Mrs. Goley. 

    In this class we will be studying world history from the Renaissance to Modern Day.  We will be breaking this time period into different sections.  In an effort to make social studies interesting and engaging, I plan to use many different lesson types, materials, and techniques during this course.
