Passive and Active Voice
Using the active voice is such an important skill for strong and effective writing. Unfortunately, very few students, it seems, even know about the difference between passive and active voice. This grammar worksheet begins with a very clear explanation and discussion of active and passive voice, and follows with two brief exercises, the first requiring the identification of voice and the second requiring the transformation of voice within sentences from passive to active while retaining all the meaning. An answer key is included.
