Product Description
Teach grammar AND reading strategies with a Christian/Catholic context by analyzing how active and passive voice appear in the hymn "A Mighty Fortress is Our God".

Students work as a whole class and then individually (or in partners) to look at the lyrics in two song verses, practicing rewriting passive lines into active voice. Students also practice reading skills by decoding the verse and paraphrasing it into "plain English".

This download includes the activity, the answer key, and tips for the teacher.

Note: It is recommended that students already know how to pinpoint the subject and verb of a sentence; at least some knowledge of active/passive voice is suggested but not required.
