    • Objectivity

  • 18. Objectivity
    • I had an appointment today with Tim. He swore several times directly at me and grabbed my shoulder at one point (which also occurred during our last appointment, as detailed in my report from January 26). He is still unemployed and has not followed through with the two phone interviews our ministry arranged for last week. He has not attended the resume workshop on February 1.

    • Active: The Montgomery College Board of Trustees reached a decision.
    • Passive: A decision was reached by the Montgomery College Board of Trustees.
    • Active: I hit the dog.
    • Passive: The dog was hit.
  • 22. Active/Passive
    • Use active as much as possible except:
      • Performer is understood, unimportant, unknown
        • My car was stolen!
        • The gardens at Camosun are maintained frequently.
      • Focus is on action, not on performer
        • A silo was erected in the middle of the field today.
  • 23. Active/Passive
    • Use active as much as possible:
      • More direct
      • Honest
      • Concise
      • Clear
