I am very proud of your performance on the active and passive voice assessment. The vast majority of you did very well. However, if you did not do well and would like a chance to re-take it, complete the following assignments: Active and passive Voice Practice-240uxkr Active – Passive Voice practice 3-1ak59rk and re-take it by the end of the week. If you need extra help, please let me know and we can set up a tutoring session before school. The re-take format will be a little different than the original as there will be no multiple choice.
