Breaking News! (Passive Voice in Use)
How to make learning the passive voice fun? Create and shoot the news! First of all let your ss recollect thematic parts a newspaper consists of. Then give them examples of the news/parts of the article that can be presented in each of them (p.2). Ss revise passive forms by putting the verbs into the correct tense form (p.2). Then divide ss into groups of 3-5 people each to create their own news. The task is to write at least one sentence in passive in each column. They can get as creative as possible! When ss are ready and mistakes are checked their news can be recorded. Here’s an example of what I did with one of my groups once. Kids didn’t have much time to prepare, so please forgive their errors :)
