Current instructor training is to teach students to unstall the wing (stick forward, enough) whilst adding full power. Once the aeroplane is flying again, only then sort out the roll.

I'm with you on the spin risk, although it is often over-stated, but even so.

Out of interest, current aircraft certification requirements actually demand that the ailerons are fully effective all the way into the stall. However, older aircraft (pre-1960s) might not be so amenable so I think its best to teach students to stay off the rudder and ailerons altogether until the aeroplane is flying again.
