This content is appropriate for high school juniors and seniors as well as college freshman. This covers all of the topics found in most general psychology textbooks.
I usually spend 1 to 2 days on each lesson. It really depends on how interactive your class is. I've had classes where students really enjoyed discussing the topics and asking questions, and others where no one wanted to say a thing. I hope your class is excited about the topics and you get lots of great discussion going! That's the most fun!
The worksheets are not just answer the question type of exercises. There are also research questions and little surveys. For example, in lesson 4, students fill out a brief survey to determine if they are at risk for developing a sleep disorder, and are asked to identify one way that they can improve their sleep hygiene.
