Students work with active and passive voice and the conditional and subjunctive moods in this lesson to determine the correct voice or mood to use. This language standard is highlighted on the NYS standards as one that must be revisited throughout eighth grade and high school as students become more sophisticated writers. In this lesson, students further analyze the thematic concept of becoming visible after captivity, which was introduced in Lesson 17.
