Here is a doc’ that I quickly put together to highlight some options for different course structures using the themantic approach.
Please note these times are approximations. In fact, the time allocations are generous. For example, the Criminology unit has 27 “lessons” but allows for 35 hours. I’ve always allocated more hours than lessons, to allow for teaching writing skills, missed classes, tests, and just the general stuff that interferes with our plans along the way.
