Aw shucks, that is a really tough spot to be in.
Something you might want to suggest to your admin is to listen to the episode of the podcast about spiralling. Obviously approaching this “gently” and not in a “see, this is the ‘right way’ to do it” or anything like that is really important here.
There is so much fear around change and I’d argue that it is so much easier for everyone to just do it the way we’ve always done it. It might not be better, but at least noone can point a finger in that scenario.
Something else to consider is that with spiraling, you want to make sure that you’re coming back to ideas often via assessment and then tailor your instruction to address where student learning is.
Any thoughts based on what we’ve written above?
BTW – we have a Q&A this Wednesday night. Maybe this is worth a chat then?
Here’s the info:
