Welcome to our “Passive Voice – Teaching Strategies” Webinar!
This Passive Voice webinar was shot on August 3rd 2015 at 8am (EST/NYC time). This was our first Webinar series focusing on the Passive Voice and Passive constructions and the session went over very well.
In this video, James Heywood provides instruction for teachers to cover the passive voice in the ESL context, for both online and in-person classes.
Remember, your goal as a teacher when covering the Passive Voice with your ESL students is:
- To teach the student to feel comfortable with the grammatical terms
- To allow the student to understand both the form and the function of the passive voice ad constructions
- To give the student enough confidence to start using the passive voice and passive constructions spontaneously
In this webinar we cover the main grammatical and teaching strategy points for you to achieve these goals with your ESL students.
We finalized the webinar, by providing a tour of Off2Class and how to use the teaching tool for your lessons. Go to minute 31:00 to see a demonstration of Off2Class.
