PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Student motivation is a constant problem for teachers of all levels. For me, teaching high school English at the Junior level, grammar review has always represented a particular challenge. Grammar review is inherently boring, but it's also incredibly important, not only for strong writing skills but also for standardized tests like the ACT.

In an effort to make grammar review more appealing to my students, I often use ridiculous, immature sentences as my examples, and I try to write lessons and worksheets that will generally interest the students. In addition to the immature and bizarre example sentences, the notes also often contain pictures and pop-culture references.

This particular lesson examines the difference between active and passive voice. The handout explains the material, using example sentences such as:

Mike urinated on the post office. (Mike is the subject. He is actively emptying his bladder on the post office.)

The accompanying worksheet assesses student understanding through thirty practice exercises. These sentences are all tied to the popular books and HBO series GAME OF THRONES. The students who are familiar with the series will enjoy all of the inside jokes on the worksheet, but an understanding of the show is not at all necessary in order to complete the worksheet.

Please Note: This packet also contains an ANSWER KEY.
