if you are not sure, the best thing would be to contact paul directly - give him a call or send him an email.
as you mentioned that you will have beginners in your class, i would suggest to demonstrate the sun salutation step-by-step, explain what you are doing and what might help your students especially in the beginning. try to remember how it was for you when you did sun salutations for the first time in your life and the difficulties you have been facing. think about common mistakes and how to avoid them and also offer modifications. encourage them and let them just try to do the best they can do for today.
maybe before you start the sun salutation sequence, you might want to introduce downwardfacing dog as a separate asana so that they can get familiar with that. or other elements of the sun salutation that you think might be tricky for your students.
when it comes to planning your program, the sequence of asanas is just a suggestion, giving you a basic guideline. if it works for you this way, it's fine. if not, it's also fine. design a lesson plan that suits your students needs. you can be creative with your lesson plan. there are many options. just keep in mind to include warm-ups, sun salutations, asanas, pranayama and meditation/relaxation, as that's what is required in your practical exam video.
