Spiralling in Practice

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Session Description: One of many concepts in education that has become somewhat of a buzzword is the concept of Spiralling. Like many concepts in our field, there is a wide range of interpretations and misconceptions associated with this instructional strategy. I intend to address these misconceptions and clarify the interpretations to demonstrate the huge impact Spiralling can have on student learning.         Attendees will explore lessons, activities, and curriculum pacing to identify standards that can be addressed using a spiralled approach within independent activities or lessons, over time. In this how to session, attendees will have an opportunity to consider their own lessons and curriculum to identify areas where Spiralling is already used or can be effectively implemented over the course of any given school year.  
Session Outcomes: Upon completion of this session, attendees will be able to:
1. effectively plan lessons that incorporate a variety of strategies that address multiple standards,
2. eliminate the habit of a “chunked” curriculum delivery, and
3. teach not only to proficiency, but to long term retention.
