Grammar Workshop: Active/Passive Voice

March 13, 2019 - 11:30pm

Active/Passive Voice

Wed / 11:30a-12:45p / COB 276

How and when should you use the passive voice? When should it be avoided? What about the requirements of writing for the sciences? Come review the forms of the active and passive voices, and the situations in which you use one or the other. Bring your questions!

This workshop is for anyone in the campus community; family members welcome. Sponsored by the English Language Institute (ELI), part of the Center for Engaged Teaching & Learning, and taught this week by Writing Program instructor Mariana Abuan. For more info, email Belinda Braunstein at
