Listen to the Grammar Girl podcast on active versus passive sentences, here: http://www.quickanddirtytips.com/education/grammar/active-voice-versus-passive-voice

When you are done listening, go to this exercise here: http://grammar.ccc.commnet.edu/grammar/quizzes/passive_quiz.htm

  • First thing, make a hard copy of the exercise.
  • Read through the sentences carefully, and put an “X” next to the ones that are written in the passive voice.
  • In your homework notebook, rewrite the first three sentences that are in the passive voice; bring the rest of the handout to class.
