Few of these strategies actually "teach" writing. Challenging a student to write about a topic, or having them peer-edit do nothing to offer corrective approaches. How about actually making suggestions how a sentence or a paragraph could be rewritten? Actually working with students to show them how specific sentences could be revised or completely rewritten is a must.
