Online Writing Lab (OWL)
at Purdue University: Useful Handouts



This week at the PALC English Students blog I referred students to a set of information on punctuation. The descriptions and examples were particularly helpful for students beginning to use the colon, the semicolon, the dash, and parenthesis.

Not only that, but students could also print off an exercise to try (with an answer key available online) as a test of their understanding.

Right now, the OWL website is being redone. However, the link to their handouts at the old site is still available and will give you lots to think about and do to improve your writing quality. Try it and see!
