During the CADRE, experience focus is centered on developing an understanding of how the student as a future practitioner might feel capable responding in various settings and situations. As a classroom equalizer, the student will feel empowered to use the knowledge, techniques, and leadership skills to set all their classroom students up for success.
Education 321 and 341 are based upon the instruction given by the K-12 CADRE teacher to whom students are assigned. These assisting experiences are meant to allow the student an opportunity to build upon his/her classroom leaning and apply that learning in an immediate and relevant setting.
These occur on campus with Doane Faculty to provide opportunities for class discussions and reflections on the classroom events and to assist in processing and integration of learnings from several sources.
Clinical Field Experience
One half-day per week (50 hours/semester) is spent in K-12 classroom. Responsibilities include observation, planning for instruction, teaching, action research and evaluation of student learning and self-reflection. Students are assigned classroom experiences corresponding to their major.
- Each student is required to complete two multicultural activities.
- Activities relate to cultural diversity in race, ethnicity, religion, class, gender, sexual orientation, and equity.
- Experiences will be attempted to link with the student assisting experience.
