Target Audience & Course Sessions
Age levels Preschool    Primary    Jr. High    Sr. High     Adult
Normal number/length of sessions If the curriculum's normal lesson plan is followed, there will be 3 class sessions each lasting about 1 to 1.5 hours
In the judgement of the reviewer:
 it is not reasonable to plan for a single, self-contained class session from these materials.
 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
