    Spiraling is something that I’ve known about for a long time, but I usually think of it at concepts that come back in future years, not as something that happens in my class during one school year. I love this idea of teaching in a spiral way throughout the year, and totally see how it can help students retain.

    Things I question are how my students will do on our district benchmark assessments, which are very blocked in nature, as well as what the balance would be between giving kids enough time with a concept to develop some understandings, but not siloing at the same time. I’m sure the idea is not to stop the units to just bounce around randomly day to day, but I’m not sure where that balance lies.
