Welcome to Social Studies Extensions!

Getting Started

  • Read through the list of extension units to the left and choose the one in which you are to participate!
  • After completion of each page, follow the link to the next step.
  • Some of the tasks require you to participate in an online discussion. You can do this by clicking on the "Discussion" tab at the top of the page. Then, choose the discussion to which you would like to contribute.
  • In order to participate in a discussion, you must join this Wiki. If you have not registered for a WikiSpace before, you must set up an account. Your username must be your first name, last initial and team color so I know who you are. For example, if I were on the White Team, my username would be MrsGWhite.

Need Help?

  • Email Mrs. Gablaski at hgablaski@shrewsbury.k12.ma.us or stop by her office. If she's not there, leave a note with your name and team and a good time to check in with you.


  • I am interested in your thoughts so once you've used this site, come back to this page by clicking on the title at the top and leave me your thoughts and how I can improve this site for you.

Important to Remember:

  • I monitor this Wiki and receive an email when anyone posts to a discussion or sends a message. Keep this in mind!

Fun to Know:

  • To change your icon in discussions, click on your name at the top of this page and the SETTINGS tab. Find and save a picture you want to use then upload it.
