Continuing through Essentials
Once you finish Lesson 7 of Essentials, continue to Lessons 8-15, 16-22 and 23-30. To teach the rest of Essentials you will need the supplements you used with Lessons 1-7, plus new Teacher's Guides, Student Workbooks, and Morpheme Flash Cards for each set of lessons.
At a pace of one week per lesson, you can complete all 30 lessons in a school year. At a pace of two weeks per lesson, you will complete about 7 or 8 lessons per semester and about 15 lessons in a school year.
The entire curriculum, Lessons 1-30, can then be reused up to two additional times at a more advanced level of instruction.
