Awesome to hear that you and your team are working together to try to solve this common challenge!
When it comes to the mastery idea – most believe that happens through mass practice (ie: chunked together) however, it seems that the current approach isn’t truly helping students achieve mastery beyond a few weeks before it fades. So my push back for those concerned about how to build mastery is that the current mass practice approach isn’t working… so why not try spiralling? You can vary the chunks. Do a few days of a concept and then move on, but you must come back and come back often to these older concepts. That is how true mastery can be achieved.
