Renowned classroom management expert Lee Canter earns a best book award for ‘Assertive Discipline®,’ published by Solution Tree.

For more than four decades, the AEP Awards have honored outstanding resources for teaching and learning.

The Association of Educational Publishers announced its 2010 Distinguished Achievement Award winners at its annual banquet in Washington, D.C., on June 8. Taking top honors in the Professional Development/Classroom/Time Management, Grades 6–8 category was Lee Canter’s “Assertive Discipline®: Positive Behavior Management for Today’s Classroom” published by Solution Tree.

This award-winning fourth edition of “Assertive Discipline®” contains the best concepts and teacher-tested strategies from the original edition by Lee Canter, plus new content. A special emphasis on the needs of new and struggling teachers includes practical actions for earning student respect and teaching them behavior management skills. The author also introduces a real-time coaching model and explains how to establish a schoolwide Assertive Discipline® program.

“For more than four decades, the AEP Awards have honored outstanding resources for teaching and learning,” says AEP. “One of the largest and longest-running awards programs for educational products, the AEP Awards aim to identify products that exemplify the highest standards of professional, quality educational content; give credit and recognition to the organizations who are leading the way in this field; and set benchmarks to which the rest of the industry can aspire.”

The AEP named five other Solution Tree resources finalists for the 2010 Distinguished Achievement Awards: “The Teacher as Assessment Leader” edited by Thomas R. Guskey; “Making Math Accessible to English Language Learners, Grades 9–12: Practical Tips and Suggestions” by r4 Educated Solutions (copublished with r4 Educated Solutions); “40 Reading Intervention Strategies for K–6 Students: Research-Based Support for RTI” by Elaine K.
