Syllabus bites: Active and passive voice - Overview

Knowledge and understanding about using active and passive voice will enhance effective writing.

In the active voice, the subject (or agent) is placed before the verb. The emphasis is on the subject who is doing the action.

In the passive voice, the object of an action is placed before the verb. The emphasis is on what is being done to the object of the sentence.

Now that the dust has again settled, and after much chat and reflection, I believe that this year's annual conference was the best to date! Despite the typical term four slump, and dreaded discussion about funding and release time, if you can manage to make the conference your teaching will be energised and refreshed.
