Lesson script

Good morning class. Today we will be learning about active and passive voice in writing. Can any of you share what you already know about active and passive voice?


Active voice shows the subject performing the action while in passive voice the subject receives the action. For example, "The cat chased the mouse" is in active voice, while "The mouse was chased by the cat" is in passive voice. Now let's look at some more examples on the board.


Please take out the handout with the exercises. You will have 10 minutes to work on transforming the sentences from active to passive and vice versa. Please work quietly and on your own.

Group Task

Now I would like you to get into groups of three and take five minutes to discuss the differences between active and passive voice. You can use the whiteboard to write down your findings. After five minutes, one person from each group will share what they discussed with the class.


Great job so far! Now let's do some writing. Please take out a piece of paper. I'm going to give you a writing prompt. You need to write one paragraph in active voice and another paragraph in passive voice. Your prompt is: "The dog chased the ball." You have five minutes to do this.


That's all for today's lesson. Don't forget to complete your homework, which is to write a short paragraph using active and passive voice and underline which voice you used in each sentence. Have a great day!
