Strategies for Teaching Writing

Hello colleagues, I'm looking for effective strategies for teaching academic writing. For example, how do you support students to write argument paragraphs and essays? Are you teaching students to cite sources?

Do you involve students in a peer review process? If so, what have been the pros and cons of peer review in your experience? What tips can you offer?

In addition, do you have writing rubrics you can share? Can you recommend online resources for teaching writing-- especially that feature model paragraphs and essays for students to study?
