Lee and Marlene Canter: Assertive Discipline: A "Take-Charge" Approach to Classroom Management
Lee J. Canter ( 1947-), prior to founding Lee Canter and Associates in 1976, worked with child guidance agencies throughout California. Marlene Canter ( 1948-) began her career teaching students with special needs. Known for their work in the fields of education and parenting, together they have written more than forty books and produced more than ten video programs -- as well as producing a myriad of support materials geared to helping educators teach and parents raise responsible children. Most recently they have worked with several universities to develop course materials for delivery in a distance-learning master's program for educators. Through professional development workshops, seminars, and graduate courses, the Canters have taught the Assertive Discipline model, a model that holds to the underlying principle that teachers have a right to teach and that students have a right to learn. Their model has been taught to more than one million people, both in the United States and abroad.
