Thursday, March 16th and Friday, March 17th

Goals: To continue to learn and apply strategies to improve our writing.


Active vs Passive Voice-Great Resource and Examples
Notes-Remember "by zombies"!
SAS Writing Reviser Lesson

Text #1

Text #2

We will be using SAS Writing Reviser.  We will open the SAS Writing Reviser Add-on and look at these two texts to learn more about active vs passive voice.  We will look at number 1 and the passive verbs. Then, we will look at the second number 2 for passive verbs.  Which is better? Why?

Now, you will open your Walter Mitty Story and begin using SAS Writing Reviser to revise for the following:

Consistent verb tense
Active voice
Run-on sentences, fragments, and comma splices

In order to receive credit, you will complete this sheet showing me what you revised.
