Part 3 MCPS: Behavior Before Belief
Loretta and Charles take on the question - why does the RBT framework hold up over time? Central to this is that the ideas and research remain relevant to impacting students. The framework is about expanding repertoires to make better choices to meet the needs of the students in front of us. In some cases, we need to push ourselves and others to get beyond the theoretical, and to act in ways that the research says makes a difference, even if we don’t believe it yet ourselves. Particularly relevant here is the belief that every child has the capacity to learn and the connection of this belief to our work with cultural proficiency and equity.
