For School and Workplace: Appropriate Writing Tools

Microsoft Word has several built-in tools to help writers eliminate errors. For this discussion, perform a search for similar tools that are on the web (or downloadable) and could therefore be useful no matter which word processing program you use.

Your initial post must include the following:

  • The full URL for a spelling or grammar tool, thesaurus, plagiarism checker, or other writing assistance tool. Try to choose a tool that has not been already overly discussed by the time you post.
  • A paragraph with a description in your own words of the tool’s capabilities.
  • In a separate paragraph, explain both the benefits and the limitations of using such tools. Do not perform additional research; use your critical thinking skills.
