In my teaching, I am committed to explicitly teaching philosophical skills. I see this as part of inclusive pedagogy: students from marginalized backgrounds (especially low-income and first generation students) are less likely to be familiar and comfortable with academic writing, and explicit guidelines and class discussion go a long way to leveling the playing field. A more obvious advantage is that students tend to hand in better work.

Here are some guidelines I have produced and used in my teaching, in conjunction with class activities to help students acquire the relevant skills:
