Online Student Textbook login:
Option A (most students prefer):
Important to Note:
3. Do not change your username or password. Each night TCI syncs with Skyward and reverts back to your username +isd and student ID + ISD
Option B (using Classlink):
Pearson online curriculum materials for your class will be through ClassLink – http://bit.ly/ISDclasslink There should be a ClassLink short cut on the desktop of school computers. ClassLink is a Launchpad for students to access online district curriculum and tools. For most applications ClassLink serves as a password locker, once you enter your username and password for Pearson, ClassLink will remember it the next time you log in.
*All students have done step above and have logged on to ClassLink on a Maywood computer and should be able to access their online textbook at home now.
YOU MUST USE a CURRENT BROWSER!! Check your browser at: www.whatbrowser.org.
Unable to logon to your 8th grade social studies online textbook?
Here are some instructions to trouble-shoot:
Student Instructions for TCI through ClassLink
Step 1: Go to http://bit.ly/ISDclasslink (please note you have to capitalize ISD)
Step 2: Log onto ClassLink with your school computer/network username. The first 4 letters of your last name, first 3 letters of your first name, and your two-digit graduation year. Example: SmitJoe18 – if there is another student in the district with the same letters in the first part of their first and last name and same graduation year, there may be an additional number after the graduation year.
Your password is the same as your regular network password. This is what you use when you log onto the computer at school.
Step 3: Click on the TCI-Students icon. You should see the text books for the classes that you have that use McGraw books.
Classes that use TCI include:
(Social Studies 6, Social Studies 7), U.S. History and Civics.
NOTE: Depending on the browser you are using; you may be asked to install an extension. Follow the instructions on the screen to install the extension. Once installed you will not be asked to install it again on that computer.

Final Project is coming (Students will get a Rubric and information will be posted on this Site this Monday, June 17):
Final Project in An’s Class for Social Studies
Explanation: Instead of doing packets and watching more social studies videos to end the year, you as the student(s) get to choose what you want to study for U.S. History. This is a solo (alone) project so you will not be working with a partner.
Step 1: Choose a topic or genre (must be mentioned in the textbook but you do not need to use the textbook as a primary source).
Step 2: You must cite where you got information (Bibliography page will work).
Step 3: Points-worth 50 points (as an Assignment grade, not Assessment)
Step 4: When is it due (?)-the last day when you are in school. For most of you this will be June 27.
Step 5: What can I do (choice): Poster, research paper, combination, PowerPoint
Step 6: Is this homework (?). No, all work should be done in class. You are graded on your productivity (being on-task each day), and turning in your final project.
Step 7: Will we have computers in class to use on this project? Yes.
Step 8: Is there a length or set number of slides or pages? No, you work each day at school. Do not take this home (no extra credit for doing work at home).
Step 9: Next steps-Fill out the next page twice. One half sheet for you. The other half is to be given to Mr. An so he has record of what you are doing.
*Step 9 above will be on this Site this Monday, and given to students on Monday in class too.
