PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This Common Core aligned lesson is designed to help students build knowledge about active and passive voice. The lesson can be taught by you or a substitute in one to two class periods, but I planned it to be taught as mini-lessons every day for a week. This allows students to absorb the concept and use it in several ways over a longer time period. In this way, the knowledge should stay with them. I intended these activities to be used first thing in class every day as a bell-ringer activity. They are straight-forward and simple so that students can absorb the basic concepts easily.
I think having all the little pieces in place such as knowing when to use active and passive voice in a sentence is essential to strong, unambiguous writing. So, no matter what the age of your students, they can benefit from this lesson.
The lesson contains:
• Complete teacher instructions
• A handout and worksheet on “What is Active Voice? with KEY
• A handout and worksheet on “What is Passive Voice? with KEY
• The instructions for the teacher doing a quick, dramatic skit to solidify to students what is the difference between active and passive voice
• A study worksheet on “Definitions and Information about Active and Passive Voice” with KEY
• A worksheet on “Using Active and Passive Voice” with KEY
• An objective “Quiz over Active and Passive Voice” with KEY

Have fun with this simple way of learning active and passive voice!
• CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.8.1b Form and use verbs in the active and passive voice.
