The best thing to do is to get your hands on some materials like Algebra I Experiments published by Dale Seymour. You need to try to do an activity somewhere to break up the time line. You can teach a lot of material in 90 minutes, but the students don't learn and retain very well unless they are engaged in activities and take ownership of the learning. The activities can be a wide variety. You should do what you can to reinforce basic ideas, but if the activity can cover a wide range of concepts, it is even better. That way you can have the students learning new things and practicing old ideas at the same time! -Claudia, for the Teacher2Teacher service
