Reflection: Perseverance Active/Passive Voice - Section 1: Differentiating Between Active/Passive Voice


As we viewed the power point, I reminded students of the revision strategy that we used throughout the year – eliminating "be" verbs from our writing.  If students avoid "be" verbs, in most cases they will be writing in the active voice.  This is difficult to do, but it accomplishes several goals – using action verbs, combining sentences, and often forcing students to use a variety of sentence beginnings.
