U-M graduate students and postdocs created these examples as part of the Rackham-CRLT Preparing Future Faculty Seminar. They are published here with the authors' consent. These examples represent the many different approaches to writing a teaching philosophy. According to CRLT's rubric for evaluating teaching philosophy statements, we consider each example to be "excellent" in at least one rubric category (e.g., goals for student learning, teaching methods, assessment of student learning, teaching inclusively, and structure, rhetoric and language).  

NOTE: These examples are available for review and should not be duplicated. Doing so is an act of plagiarism.
