Participants will see the difference in how a reader perceives a message when writing with the active voice versus the passive voice. The strategies for this subject include:

1. Follow the subject + verb + object pattern

2. Change -tion/-ment nouns to verbs

3. Use passive voice to avoid placing blame

Learners will gain confidence in their abilities to write each sentence with a specific purpose, as opposed to simply writing what comes to mind. In addition, participants will begin to develop a writer's mindset and an eye toward knowing when to use the active voice and when to use the passive voice to communicate the intended message.
