    I had heard about spiraling and we were always told we were doing it by beginning class with review questions. Now I have a deeper meaning of what spiraling really means and how it is a form of interleaving. I like the messiness of it, even though it complicates matters for me for it is much more like how people really learn best, as the researchers stated. I loved Cary’s admonition to “Let go” of the all the paced, repetitive, ritualistic type of teaching and learning we’ve been steeped in for so long. My students have been asking for more wonder-ful and curiosity-inspiring lessons and I intend to respond to the call by spiraling and taking on what I am learning through this course! Slight Smile
