Style in Advanced Composition: Active Students and Passive Voice.
Frischkorn, Craig
Teaching English in the Two-Year College, v26 n4 p415-18 May 1999
Argues that, as decision makers, students must sort out their rhetorical contexts to determine whether a sentence needs the active voice or the passive voice. Notes that one source for finding realistic sample sentences for learning about the passive voice is the daily newspaper, and offers examples from the business section, sports page, political reporting, and columns.
