Owls are known for their wisdom, and the OWL at Purdue University is no exception. The OWL, which stands for Online Writing Lab, is an immense online resource for students, teachers, tutors, and academic support professionals. With more than 200 resources, the OWL offers printable information and practice exercises on writing and teaching writing, research, grammar and mechanics, style guides, English as a second language, job searches, and professional writing. There are specific sections for middle and high school students, adult basic education, university instructors and students, and professional writers. The OWL is online, so you can access it 24/7, and best of all, it’s completely free—you don’t even have to sign up or create an account. Although my enthusiasm for OWL may make it appear that I am receiving some sort of bonus for promoting the site, the truth is simply that it is one of my favorite resources and I’m enormously grateful for its existence. If you haven’t stopped by the OWL yet, check it out.
