About

Elementary Education from Doane University prepares students to teach kindergarten through eighth-grade. A range of field experiences in your sophomore and junior years will help you decide which grade level you would most like to teach.

Overview

Students majoring in Elementary Education must also complete a major or endorsement in middle grades, early childhood, special education, English as a Second Language, Spanish, music, mathematics, science and/or physical education. A coaching endorsement may be added.

Students can also choose to be certfied for pre-kindergarten through 12th-grade in art, music, physical education, and English as a Second Language to complete the elementary major requirements.

The Doane University Elementary Education program is known nationwide for its innovative, performance-based approach to teacher education based on a quality model of theory and developmental experiences.

At Doane, students complete a minimum of 225 clock hours of clinical field experience prior to student teaching.

  • This field experience component is designed to engage the pre-service teacher in teaching and learning experiences in PK-12 classrooms during their sophomore and junior year.
  • These experiences can include lesson design and implementation, small group facilitation, and one-on-one instruction.
  • Student teaching is an extended ten to fourteen week experience in a PK-12 setting where each student has primary responsibility for a classroom during the senior year.  Each major or endorsement may extend into an additional student teaching experience.
