    I have heard of spiraling mostly in the context of spiral review, such as for warm-ups or practice, but not in terms of spiraling the actual curriculum. It’s an interesting idea for sure, but it seems daunting to plan for. As we transition more to task-based learning in my grade-level math department for the first time, I think we will naturally see different concepts come up. We have already planned our units for the year, as we are supposed to follow a specific curriculum with those units and fill out a “curriculum map” that outlines each unit. It would be interesting to see what such a curriculum map could look like when planning to spiral.
