        Please add the links to your presentation and the two activities you created for it below as well as a short rationale explaining why you chose those activities and where they would come in the presentation, e.g:

        “The unjumble activity would come right at the beginning to check their existing knowledge of the passive voice for unknown actor. The quiz with the multiple choice questions would come right at the end after the grammar explanation to check their understanding of the form, meaning and structure”

        Please come back to the forum during the week and try to leave responses to at least two other teacher’s activities, commenting on how effective you think the activities are in helping the students process the information in the presentation.

          Hi everyone!

          Please find attached the link of my presentation and the two activities I designed.

          The first activity would come at the beginning testing their basic knowledge of the passive voice and the multiple choice would test at the end if they grasped the concept of authorship in the passive voice.

              Your 1st activity is great @ptzanni. Make sure that the 2nd activity has clear instructions (see my post below on how to do it).

              Here’s a link to my presentation plus Wordwall activities:

              The first activity gives answers to the questions on the previous slide and helps students confirm what they know about this particular use of the passive, and the second activity checks understanding.

                  I like how your instructions on the slide also guide students in what to do after they have completed the activity @suerobbins. You have also reminded students of the example sentences and the question before revealing the answers (contiguity). I would suggest trying to separate the example from the question slightly in the flip card activity, but Wordwall doesn’t seem to make this possible.

                  Here’s a link to my presentation plus Wordwall activities. I added the cloze activity in the middle on the assumption that they are familiar with the grammar but might need a reminder before going on to the unjumble activity where they turn the active sentence into a passive.

                      I really like your first activity @jemima. It worked well as a reminder. On the second one, perhaps show the active sentence on the same slide as the task (contiguity). I had to jump back to find it to help with ordering the noun phrases.

                        My presentation lives here

                        As you can see I added a review on using the passive in scientific AW at the beginning

                        <span>Passive (I)</span>

                        After students had had a chance to explore the problem (repetition of the subject) and the solution (use the passive) they get to rewrite the methodology using the fill in the gaps. To make things harder, I added ‘wrong’ options as you can see below

                        <span>Methodology (1)</span>

                        The presentation concludes with a little summary/ review, ta-da! :yahoo:

                            I would add something like this to slide 3 to check their knowledge.

                            I would also add this to slide 4 on the presentation.
                            <iframe src=”https://wordwall.net/embed/f87d492a9bb2489fb8fe9853b497c90e?themeId=1&templateId=36&#8243; width=”500″ height=”380″ frameborder=”0″ allowfullscreen=””>
                            Then in slide 7 this missing word check.

                            I would put this true / false quiz on the first slide to check the student’s knowledge:

                                These tasks carefully check understanding of the passive @david-l.  I like how you ask questions about the active first to make sure that is clear. Do slides 3 and 7 have the same link? I had a little difficulty reading the information in the T/F question in time to answer the questions. I wonder if a task that gives students time to think carefully about their answers might be more suitable here. The questions themselves are really useful.

                                Hi

                                Here is my presentation with wordwall activities within it.

                                I have added both exercises at the end of the presentation to show how we change the form of the verb ‘to be’ and not the past participle in different passive tense forms. The rationale behind this is that I am thinking of my learners previous knowledge and the first few slides were a review of the passive form for academic writing style, whilst the later two slides with activities model the type of academic language but additionally build on the grammar awareness of the formation of the passive/ :mail:

                                    I like your Wordwall activities Allison. They’re really good because you have to really think about them.

                                      These are really nice activities @spottypoppy. I like how you have the instructions on the slide above the activities, and how you introduce the tenses along with the passive. Just check which answers you have marked as correct/incorrect.

                                      So I choose two activities types for this.

                                      The first is a multiple choice quiz. I give them the active and passive version of a sentence and they have to decide which is which. I thought that this would get the students to start noticing the differences between the types of sentence.

                                      The second type then gets students to rearrange sentences into the passive. I just noticed someone else has done the same but I think it’s a good activity type.

                                       

                                      <span>Are they active or passive?</span>

                                      <span>Passive unjumble</span>

                                              These activities look good. My only suggestion would be to shuffle the sentences in the first activity. At the moment, if I see that the first sentence in the pair is active, I can guess that the 2nd one will then be passive without needing to read it carefully.

                                              I decided on T/F about when we use the passive at the beginning as a general reminder, and then at the end an activity that is a follow-up from the slides.

                                                  I love the True False activity Julie. I like the Blackboard background and I really like the way the sentences move quite quickly so you have to think quickly. Definitely got me on my toes!

                                                    The second activity is really clear @julie. The examples show the ‘obvious’/’irrelevant’ distinction very well. The second activity is definitely fun, but I wonder how necessary it is to read the descriptions at speed. Perhaps that is more suited to a vocabulary/spelling type task or something focusing on speed reading.

                                                        @Caitlin, I like the way you have included different forms of the passive in your practice tasks, starting with a simpler gap fill and then moving on to order the sentences. In the sentence ordering task, just sentence 2 was perhaps a little long – students might have to focus more on the noun phrases here than the passive.

                                                          Note that you can add or edit the instructions for your Wordwall activities using the ‘+ Instruction’ button. It’s quite small and easy to miss.

                                                              I would add in this group sort activity after slide to to provide students with practice at identifying the active and passive voices after reading the explanations and seeing the examples.

                                                              The jumble activity could be used after the final slide to provide some controlled practice.

So, please just share them as links in the reply box (we’ve removed the text option now)
