The Canter Model of Assertive Discipline
Systematic approach designed to assist teachers in managing an organized classroom. Teacher-in-charge classroom Assertive Discipline
Example 1. A third grade teacher had a number of students who frequently would push and shove in order to be the first in line which resulted in constant fighting and yelling before the class went outside.
1. The teacher walks up to the children and states, “I don’t know what’s wrong with you children. You’re pushing and shoving again. You children need to learn how to line up like good boys and girls. Now I want you all to try and do that.
2. The teacher walks up to the children, grabs them, yanks them to the back of the line and says, “You push and shove others, I’ll push and shove you. See if you like it.”
3. The teacher firmly tells students, “Stop pushing and shoving.” To back up her words, she makes all the children who were pushing and shoving go to the back of the line.
Non-assertive: The teacher doesn’t clearly express their wants and feelings, nor do they back up their words with the necessary positive action.
Hostile: Teachers express their wants and feelings, but in a way that “puts down” others or abuses their rights.
Assertive: The teacher clearly and firmly communicates their needs to their students, and are prepared to reinforce their words with appropriate actions.
Teachers have the right to: establish a classroom structure and routine. determine and request appropriate behavior from the students. ask for help from parents, the principal, etc. when you need assistance with a child.
Students have the right to: have a teacher who is in the position to and will help them limit their inappropriate, self-disruptive behavior. …provide positive support for appropriate behavior. choose how to behave and know the consequences that will follow.
To establish your rights within the classroom, you have to identify what things / behaviors you need in your classroom.
