CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.8.1b Form and use verbs in the active and passive voice
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.8.1d Recognize and correct inappropriate shifts in verb voice and mood.
CCSS.ELA-Literacy.L.8.3a Use verbs in the active and passive voice and in the conditional and subjunctive mood to achieve particular effects (e.g., emphasizing the actor or the action; expressing uncertainty or describing a state contrary to fact).
Mastering the passive voice uses video, comics, a song, a quiz and a worksheet to provide instruction and practice. Students will recognize passive forms, know when (and when not) to use them and change voices appropriately. The Latin personal endings passive are also included.
