What is the difference between passive and active voice?
Passive voice emphasizes an action or the recipient of an action. Active voice emphasizes the one performing the action. For example: "The cat stared at the bird" is active. "The bird was stared at by the cat" is passive. "The cat was staring at the bird" is still passive, because it emphasizes the action. Let's have one more: "They recycled the water bottles" is active. "The water bottles were recycled" is passive.
Subject: Film and Theater
Who wrote "Citizen Kane?"
The screenplay for "Citizen Kane" is credited to Orson Welles, who also directed and starred in the film, as well as Herman Mankiewicz. It is argued that Mankiewicz may have been the sole screenwriter in actuality (as popularized by the movie "Mank"), but this is not certain.
How do I structure an essay?
Generally speaking, your essay will likely be structured in the following format: introduction, body paragraphs, and conclusion. The introduction summarizes the topic of your essay and ends with your thesis statement - a concise sentence describing your point of view on the subject, as your essay will support. Depending on your given length requirements, you will have a minimum of three body paragraphs. These act as the meat of your essay. They each contain a topic sentence supporting your thesis and researched support for your argument. Finally, the conclusion wraps everything up! You will summarize the goal of your essay once again and restate your thesis. By the way, the best way to ensure bulletproof essay structure is to start with an outline!
