Writing Matters offers instructors and students an accessible four-part framework that focuses the rules and conventions of writing through a lens of responsibility, ultimately empowering students to own their ideas and to view their writing as consequential. Writing Matters helps students see the conventions of writing as a network of responsibilities: to other writers by treating information and sources fairly and accurately, and crafting writing that is fresh and original; to their audience by writing clearly, designing accessibly, and providing readers with the information and interpretation they need to make sense of a topic; to their topic by exploring an issue thoroughly and creatively, assessing sources carefully, and providing reliable information at a depth that does the topic justice; to themselves by taking their writing seriously, approaching the process as an opportunity to learn and to expand research and writing skills, and to capably join larger conversations in which their voices can and should be heard.
