Freshman college students are too passive, according to many professors. One of the top errors seen in many writing centers is the use of Passive instead of Active voice.
In this 14 slide presentation, Bubba and Zelda (my teen characters who appear in many of my lessons) show why Active Voice is preferable in writing. The presentation offers 30 sentences that can be used for practice for quizzes, or for both.
Any of the slides, but especially the four with the exercises could be printed instead of having the students copy the sentences.
Bounce students from their writing lethargy with this Active and Passive Voice PowerPoint.
