How can I reword the statement so the passive voice is not used?In my classes, I try to use every productive strategy that I can find to engage students. As an English teacher, I am often overwhelmed with reading literature and grading essays. It is easy to fall into a routine. For some educators that ritual of reading selections and writing papers may or may not garner success, but because it is the norm, we stick to the plan. We often do not take the time to investigate and assess the needs of our students. We teach to our own learning styles, and our student’s needs are secondary.
Several authorities on the subject of success amongst African American students point toward the arts, technology, varied teaching strategies, and parental involvement as a recipe for success. I have incorporated several of these strategies in my classes and have found them to have lead to positive outcomes. I plan to demonstrate the effect of research and the success of incorporating teaching strategies geared toward this population. This will be demonstrated using two classes with similar populations. I will show the effects of teaching when the a-fore mentioned strategies are used, as opposed to the effects of traditional teaching methods. This observation can be a resource for other teachers who want to do their best and give the students what they require for educational success.
I wouldn't worry about this single clause being passive. There are several ways to change it.
I will show the effects of teaching using the aforementioned strategies, as opposed to the effects of using traditional teaching methods.
