Building Blocks and Progress Chains

March 2024 content release article

If you’ve taken a Spin City Instructor Course, you’ll already know that we love to break down skills into their foundational elements. We use these building blocks to create progress chains that provide a skill pathway, setting students up for success.

This month’s combo content will show how progress chains work across levels and our teachers tip will give you our top 5 reasons to use them.
