Extended Essay and Internal Assessment Writers: A Good Guide for Avoiding Passive Voice

Passive voice is the bane of good history writing, but often proves a difficult concept to explain to students.  Mrs. Harrington has just passed on a hilarious help for finding passive voice in your sentences.  Just insert “by zombies” after any verb, and if the sentence makes sense, you have passive voice!

Examples:

“My extended essay first draft was written by zombies.”

“Sorry I’m late, Mr. Harrington.  I was driven to school by zombies.”  Explains a lot.
