Passive Voice

Thoroughly cover the difference between passive and active voice with these grammar activities. Several examples are listed for you to read to your class. Learners then practice changing a sentence from active to passive voice with a partner. For homework, have scholars look for sentences written in the passive voice in newspapers, magazines, or other articles, as well as change a recipe for chocolate chip cookies into passive voice.

As the International Teacher for Miina Härma Gumnaasium in Tartu, Estonia, I teach classes in English that include children from Estonia, Romania, Latvia, Lithuania, and even Pakistan besides Britain and the United States. Lesson Planet helps me find many worksheets and lessons that feature hands-on activities, good graphic organizers, clear, simple language and diagrams, step-by-step math explanations. It is basically very useful for helping a teacher with a largely ESL population. Moreover, I must develop my own teaching materials since I follow the Estonian national curriculum PLUS the national standards of the students, which can be difficult to reconcile together -- never mind, trying to find a textbook that suits (and, I might add, English-language texts are not easily obtainable here).
