Product Description
This lesson is a quick introduction to active and passive voice, great for those teaching CCSS L.8.1b to 8th graders, filling in a knowledge gap, OR preparing older students for a standardized test, including the SAT and ACT.

This download is 4 pages long: a two-page handout, ready to copy, and its answer key.

The first page of this handout shows student pairs of “right” and “wrong” sentences so they can look for patterns and infer what the “rules” are for good sentences. (Don’t worry – later, I clarify to students that passive voice isn’t always “wrong”.)

Once we’ve drawn our conclusion, we flip over to page 2 to learn about active vs. passive voice and to see if our predictions were correct. After a quick crash course on their definitions and how to easily distinguish them, we move to whole-class identification and then small group and independent writing.

The lesson ends with a prompt for students to write on an index card, which you can use as an exit ticket or as student work samples to quickly place under a document camera and evaluate as a class. (This is great for collecting formative data and immediately giving feedback!)
