We will work with true passive voice, being verbs, as clauses and other maligned sentence structures with bad reps. The classes will consist of lectures, examples, and explanations of reasons some "experts" would "kill" certain structures. We will look at times to make good use of those structures.
Week 1 will consist of working with "as clauses" so writers can see ways to replace as many as possible. Students will have the opportunity to improve material provided by the instructor and to offer work for us to help them improve.
Week 2 will deal with myths about passive voice and being verbs. The instructor will give rules, explanations, examples, and ways to select the best times to delete or keep passive voice and being verbs.
Week 3 will offer cures for ing verb indigestion. We will look at issues overuse of those ing verbs can cause.
Week 4 "And, but, and or" independent clauses will rule and fall as we find better conjunctions to use for them.
