Students are more likely to learn about a topic and to expand their scope as writers. Students are more likely to write well when they think of themselves as writers rather than as error-makers. By explaining rules in the context of responsibility,Writing Mattersaddresses composition students respectfully as mature and capable fellow participants in the research and writing process.
