The elementary education major incorporates Clarke University’s broad liberal arts foundation with general examination of art, music, social studies, sciences and child development. By engaging students in a wide range of study, majors are provided with the necessary background to confidently enter the classroom. Each student is required to provide a portfolio of his/her work and progress that will be reviewed and adjusted throughout the course of study. Additionally, students will gain the necessary hands-on classroom experience in Clinical Literacy Block and Clinical Interdisciplinary Block classes at Clarke’s Professional Development School sites. The integration of these aspects provides graduates the opportunity to inspire life-long learning in their own classrooms.
