Show your high school and junior high learners the importance of active and passive voice in writing, and let them get their hands dirty with the provided practice questions. Although the instructional activity says that the active voice is preferred, it does support that the passive voice is effective for creating specific effect in writing. Learners explore documents like the Declaration of Independence and JFK’s Inaugural Address, as well as excerpts from fictional writing. The directions are clear, and the practice is effective. There is little need for modification.
