Each of the subjects is divided into units and lessons, with each unit containing an introduction, pre/post tests, several sample lesson plans, and a resource list. Each lesson plan states behavioral objectives, content, detailed learning activities, and needed resources. Time spent on each unit and lesson is left open, depending on the teacher, students, and situation. (LH)
