According to Stephen Covey (2016), one of the seven habits of highly effective people is “Seek first to understand, then to be understood.” The ability to communicate effectively is the key to fulfilling relationships, successful academics, and rewarding employment. The skills used in effective written communication are the same tools used when communicating verbally. The goal of the Grace Online Writing Lab (Grace OWL) is to help students in the development and refinement of their written assignments. Rather than a spell check or quick fix for papers, the Grace OWL is a learning tool designed to help students develop the needed skills to compose papers at the college level.
The OWL (Online Writing Lab) of Grace Bible College is dedicated to the enhancement of student writing using a “minimalist tutoring” approach. This approach aids in fostering a creative environment where the student takes ownership of the work. The student is in “charge” of the assignment. The student tells the tutor what is needed in a tutoring session or a paper review. It is imperative that the student knows that he/she is responsible for making any direct changes with the paper. The tutor merely gives advice and suggestions. Grace OWL tutors do not “fix” the paper.
The OWL is dedicated to the old adage “if you give a man a fish, he eats for a day, but if you teach a man to fish, he eats for a lifetime”. As such, a good session involves the student taking an active role in the growth and development of the writing assignment. This leads to skill building and greater independence for the student in preparing future assignments.
