Greetings from Mrs. Voss
Hello. I'm Lisa Voss and I've taught in Holland Public Schools for more than 20 years. Welcome to my introduction page! I teach 6th and 7th grade S.S. with a newly created curricular approach. 6th graders are using two online textbooks this year. The Geography books can be found online by going to teachtci.com, then students should sign in with my teacher email (firstname.lastname@example.org), their username, and their password which are Voss(their number in SS class)and the letter G.
For example, Voss1G is the username and password for the student #1.
Their second resource is a new online textbook that we will be loading onto their Chromebooks after October 5, 2015. 7th graders are using a History textbook online. The log in information is similar to their HPS email and password. The students know that they may not include the @hps21.org portion of their log in when they access their TCI account. The log in is the same that they used in 6th grade. P.S. Further instructions for resources and assignments are recorded in the Student Planners and on our Google Classroom sites.
PARENTS: Please make sure to check your child's student planner regularly. These planners are checked Fridays in all S.S. classes. Your child earns 10 points in their formative grades each week for their planners, but they can earn a bonus point if you have signed their planners.
FYI - Grades are calculated in two categories:
Formative grades are daily work, homework, etc. while summative grades are an average of tests, projects, and quizzes (the work that demonstrates what was learned.)
6th grade - 60% summative and 40% formative
7th grade - 70% summative and 30% formative
If you have any questions regarding my class or your student's progress, please contact me and I will be happy to respond.
I can be reached via my email (email@example.com).
