    My biggest takeaway is the importance of knowing what you need to teach. The ability to spiral starts with not only knowing what to teach, but how to teach it, how to support students because common misconceptions are prepared for, and how it connects with other learning. I wonder how this can be accomplished with districts that keep common local assessments. Assessment perspectives would have to change to a diagnostic mentality of “this tells me where you are at currently, and what more do we need to do to get you to mastery?” (which is where they should already be, but you know)
