How long are the lessons?

In Elementary School, there are 14-16 lessons per unit. Elementary lessons are 20-30 minutes, but can easily be shortened or broken down into two lessons, or expanded to fit longer time frames. We also have supplementary materials that can be utilized to lengthen a lesson, add to a unit, and extend learning.

The Middle School program consists of a 6th, 7th and 8th grade curriculum. There are 35 lessons for each of the four units in the Middle School Program, for a total of 140 lessons. Middle School lessons are between 10 and 20 minutes. This program was designed to be implemented in a daily homeroom/advisory period. However, we understand that some schools don’t have this dedicated time to teach it daily and cover all lessons.  At the very least, we recommend you teach all of the brain blast lessons. Then, you can pepper in the power surges that best meet the needs of your students and schedule.

The High School Program consists of a 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grade curriculum. There are 28 total lessons for each grade level of the High School Program. High school lessons are approximately 10-15 minutes long, but can easily be extended as time allows.

We pride ourselves on having a comprehensive and impactful program that is easy to implement and adaptable to varying schedules, environments and uses.
