    Default reduced relative clause


    I wonder if it's possible to reduce the following relative clause?
    This plan which has been used in our school hasn't been productive. Can we say 'This plan being used in our school.....? or 'This plan used in our school.....?

    Thanks a lot.
    Being a non-native teacher, I'm so thrilled being in such a superb forum.

    Default Re: reduced relative clause

    All three seem fine to me. The choice would depend on context.
