insistent, and consistent manner assertive discipline prompts students to choose
to conduct themselves properly in school Assertive Teacher's Classroom Discipline Plan
clear set of rules for class behavior
positive consequences such as recognition and praise
negative consequences applied when rules are broken 3 Types of Teachers Hostile Nonassertive Assertive Hostile teachers behave in a manner that
suggests they see students as adversaries. They feel that to maintain order to teach properly they must keep the upper hand. They attempt to lay down the law, except no nonsense, and use commands and facial expressions. Nonassertive teachers are overly
passive and fail to specify clear and
reasonable expectations for
classbehavior. They are inconsistent
in responding to misbehavior by allowing
certain acts one day and disapproving
of acts the next. Students are confused
about expectations and enforcement. Assertive teachers clearly,
confidently, and consistently model
and express class expectations. They
work to build trust with the class and
teach students how to behave so they
can learn and relate to others. They
recognize students' needs for warmth and encouragement and realize that
students may require direction in how
to behave acceptably in the classroom. What is it? systematic and objective way to ensure teacher-controlled classroom demanding, yet fair clear expectations clear consequences follow through development of positive relationships with students WEAKNESSES effective for many teachers get support from adminstrators and parents expectations are laid out along with consequences positive reinforcement is used more often than negative places the responsibility for student behavior on the student not the teacher Canter's research has no references or citations assumes will work with all students consequences can be too severe for minor infractions or too simplistic for other behaviors can be too general for children with special needs rules and consequences are determined by authority figure without much student input Conclusion Lee and Marlene have dedicated their lives to helping students and teachers. They developed the Assertive Discipline system because they saw that teachers were often unable to get rid of unwanted behaviors in the classroom. They attributed this problem to a lack of training in behavior management. The Canters use their company, Canter and Associates, Inc., (now Laureate International Universities) to market their assertive discipline program and products aimed at teacher education such as motivation, violence prevention, conflict resolution, and instructional strategies. They provide professional development training for teachers, and materials that could be used by universities for degree programs and graduate-level work.
