    I’m so excited to try this, and I did some deep work already this year with diving into the math frameworks for both 7th and 8th grade, so I’m excited to weave the topics together.

    I guess one thing that I’m wondering is how long you spend on a topic in each spiral — does it become kind of 1-day-1-strand or will some strands take a week to cover before you move onto others? Looking at your example, it seems to differ depending on the learning goal.

    I also wonder about if the learning goals you choose from each strand for a spiral need to have direct connections to the other learning goals in different strands — connections can be so helpful for students, but some things are just totally unrelated to other topics. I don’t want to create whiplash for kids either. Thoughts?
