I am such a huge fan of spiralling but have been hesitant due to my inexperience with the courses I am teaching (I’m a new teacher). I’ve promised myself to get my bearings with traditional massed practice and then hop straight into spiralling when I’m feeling more versed. I’ve been slowly seeding in these moments throughout this last year, prepping my self for the future. It’s very exciting. The one thing that I have noticed about my own practice is the fear of having to “go back”. There’s a strange feeling of failure (?) associated with going back to “reteach” certain concepts, or a feeling of broken contenuity when you deviate from the overall unit plan. I have been actively trying to fight back on these feelings and tell myself it is absolutely okay to loop back over and revisit a concept by from a different or more nuanced angle.
