Correcting Shifts in Verb Voice

Correcting Shifts in Verb Voice

It's important for writers to use consistent verb voice to ensure that their writing is clear and easy to follow. Writers should avoid inappropriate shifts in verb voice, aiming to keep the elements in a sentence consistent. While active voice is generally preferred in formal writing, there are instances when passive voice is appropriate depending on the context. In this two-page grammar worksheet for eighth grade, students will read sentences written using passive voice and rewrite them using active voice, correcting shifts in verb voice to retain the original meaning of the passage.
