Dear James, apologies for the delay in response! As one of the materials developers, I allocated three weeks to the module, with one unit covered per week. My class met 2x/week for 1h50m each class meeting. Students had 3-4 nights between classes to do the readings. If you're using the materials for the 1st time, you might want to give yourself an extra class meeting or two in your schedule to allow for any adjustments you might have to make as you implement. Hope this helps!

And, I should also note that you can check out more details about how each of the developers implemented the materials in our instructor stories, here: https://serc.carleton.edu/integrate/teaching_materials/storm_resilience/instr...
