From the Publisher:
Powered by Connect Composition 2.0, WRITING MATTERS helps students own their ideas and put responsible writing into practice. Through a focus on student responsibilities to other writers, to the topic, to the audience, and to themselves, the program helps students better understand reasoning, researching, documentation, grammar, and style.

WRITING MATTERS eBook. The CONNECT COMPOSITION PLUS 2.0 eBook provides Writing Matters content in a digital format that is accessible from within Connect and Blackboard. In support of the engaged learning experience, students can link directly to activities and assignments within CONNECT from the eBook. Students can have all the resources from Writing Matters right on their desktops!

NOTE: There are two Connect Composition Plus available for Writing Matters. One for the Comprehensive edition and one for the Tabbed edition.

Personal Learning Plan (PLP) Through an intuitive, continually adaptive diagnostic that assesses proficiencies in five core areas of grammar and mechanics, students generate a personalized learning plan tailored to address their needs within the timeframe students determine what they want to study. The personalized program includes contextualized grammar and writing lessons, videos, animations, and interactive exercises and provides immediate feedback on students? work and progress.

Based on metacognitive learning theories, the PERSONAL LEARNING PLAN continually adapts with each interaction, while built-in time management tools keep students on track to ensure they achieve their course goals. The Personal Learning Plan is designed to improve student writing, allow classroom instruction to focus on critical writing processes, and support the goals of writing programs and individual instructors with reports that present data related to progress, achievement, and students who may be at risk.

Writing Matters unites research reasoning, documentation, grammar, and style into a cohesive whole, helping students see the conventions of writing as a framework of responsibilities. The responsibilities writers have?

-to other writers. Writing Matters clarifies the responsibility writers have to one another ? whether they are collaborating in an online peer review or drawing on digital and print resources in a research project ? to treat information fairly and accurately and to craft writing that is fresh and original ? their own.
-to the audience. Writing Matters stresses the importance of using conventions appropriate to the audience, to write clearly, and to provide readers with the information and interpretation they need to make sense of a topic.
-to the topic. Writing Matters emphasizes the writer?s responsibility to explore a topic thoroughly and creatively, to assess sources carefully, and to provide reliable information at a depth that does the topic justice.
-to themselves. Writing Matters encourages writers to take their writing seriously and to approach writing tasks as an opportunity 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 Matters addresses composition students respectfully as mature and capable fellow participants in the research and writing process.
