Princeton University: Preparing to Write a Teaching Statement

From the webpage: “As you prepare to write your statement, reflect on your goals for teaching in your discipline or area of expertise. In determining your goals, consider not only your content objectives, but also the ways of thinking or the intellectual skills you want your students to learn. (In fact, students learn facts and arguments by using or reasoning about them, integrating them into larger structures of knowledge.) You may also want to acknowledge the more expansive habits of mind or being you want them to adopt.”
