There are many instances where a sentence will have two or more verbs. It is imperative that the verbs stay in the same voice and do not undergo a shift. This can confuse the reader as to the intent of the author. If you compose your sentence with an active voice, it will naturally flow better when accommodate this. When in doubt, go with an active voice. The passive voice is much better used when there are several unknowns in the sentence. These worksheets will have students rewrite and compose sentences that strive to maintain a consistent voice throughout the complete length of the sentence.
