Active and passive voice of the Present Continuous tense

Active voice: Subject (doer) + is/am/are + V1+ing + object
Passive voice: The object (receiver of the action) + is/am/are + being + V3 + (by the doer)

Active: She is taking a class.
(she = doer of the action, is = helping verb = taking = main verb, a class = receiver of the action)

Passive: A class is being taken by her.
(a class = the new subject, is being = helping verb = taking = main verb)
