By now most of you have used Zoom. You’re using it right now to participate in our webinars! But did you know there’s more hidden behind the scenes? Features you have with your account right now that you might not even realize are available to you? In this webinar, I'm going to show you some of these hidden settings to help make the experience for you and your students more engaging and easier to use.
Learn how to get your students to RSVP for class, how to email reminders to your students prior to the meeting, how to get your students to "raise their hand", how to use break-out rooms and nonverbal feedback, how to protect your classroom against unwanted visitors, how to take attendance, the difference between a "webinar" and a "meeting", and tips on how to manage both small and large groups of attendees.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do you have a pacing guide?
Depending on the title you're using, there may be a pacing guide for the first chapter in the resource library. This guide will show you how to pace the elements found in each chapter and can serve as an outline for your lesson plans for other chapters. Not sure where the resource library is? Check out this video. No matter which title you use, there are lots of great materials in the Resource Library to help with your planning.
Is Voces aligned to state standards? ACTFL standards?
Voces is aligned to the ACTFL World-Readiness Standards. Each title will have an alignment document in the Resource Library. Like the pacing guide, this will be for the first chapter only but can easily be applied to the subsequent chapters.
We find that most states follow these same standards closely, and we're happy to help with confirming that our curriculum follows your state standards.
Do you offer physical companion books?
Voces Digital textbooks are online-only. The Nuestra historia series does offer companion readers which can be purchased here.
What's the difference between Notre/Nuestra and their companions?
Notre histoire and Nuestra historia are our French and Spanish Comprehensible Input curriculum series. These titles use compelling stories filled with high-frequency structures to prepare students for Integrated Performance Assessments at the end of each unit. Read more here.
Francais 1 and 2 as well as Spanish Novice and Intermediate are our grammar-based curriculum series. This is a method that shelters vocabulary into themed lists and has a finer focus on grammar concepts. Read more here.
How do I add students?
There are several methods of adding students: the best way will be different for each teacher, so if you need any help deciding, don't hesitate to reach out!
Add students with your LMS: If you use a Voces-integrated LMS (Google Classroom, Schoology, or Canvas). you can easily import your students using your LMS link! Read more about LMS integration here.
Create a Class and Add Students:This video will walk you through manually adding your students either by hand or with a .csv spreadsheet. (Don't worry, the video shows you how to make sure you have that file as well!)
Enable Self-Registration:This video gives you step-by-step directions for adding your students through self-registration. This is a great option if you have larger classes but don't use a Voces-integrated LMS (Google, Schoology, Canvas).
How do I link my LMS?
Voces Digital is very excited to offer LMS (learning management systems) integration. We are working to add more programs to our list but we currently offer full integration with Google Classroom, Schoology, and Canvas.
