The students will be given the HO and told to look at exercise 1, which instructions them to id the passive form in each sentence. I will have some students come to the board to write the answer.
I will have students work on ex 3 which asks them to complete the rules about using passive voice. I will then nominate students for FB answers.
I will have the students skim the first paragraph in ex 2 and ask them will famous person they are referring to.
In ex 2 of the HO, the students will be given four paragraphs and told to change the italics to passive voice.
I have the students get in groups of three and have them pick a famous person in which to describe in the passive voice. Once they have thought of someone I will switch the teams so they can quiz the group members of that person. I will model an example first.
