How long should a workshop take with 45-minute classes a day?

I have my students for 45 minutes a day. How long should it take us to get through a workshop in our book?

    If you do a conventional schedule with 45-minute classes, you will have four rotations over two days which means you will have one Whole Group session and one Small Group session (per group of students) every two days. There are six workshops in Universal, so you will complete about three workshops a year with 45-minute classes. Email me directly at AskDee@sbcglobal.net if you need help setting up your classes.
