A question that came up for me in this moment is, do you tell your students that you are going to be spiralling your content, practice problems, and/or evaluations? Students are creatures of habit (like we all are) and change is hard. If you are introducing the practice of spiralling to students for the first time, is it useful to tell them that you will be teaching one topic for a few days and then moving on to another and then returning to the first topic later in course? If so, how do you have this conversation?
