NOTE: Our reviewer may have checked a wider age range than specified in the curriculum itself.
Normal number/length of sessions If the curriculum's normal lesson plan is followed, there will be 22 class sessions each lasting about 45min. to 1 hour

 using these materials, or even just one session from them, a reasonable, coherent and self-contained class can be offered in a single session of about an hour.
 using these materials, a class can be offered that runs for at least two sessions.
Target audience:
 Interfaith - addressed people of many faiths
 Judeo-Christian - addressed to Jews & Christians
 Christian - addressed explicitly to Christians
 Not explicity faith-based - not much religious content
