It might be best to call up a local place that does powerskating lessons and ask them what to do. They'd probably tell you to pay them to come do it for you though.
Other than that, I have no idea. I've never taken power skating, but I always thought it was some kind of mythical beast, completely different from a regular, skating-focused, practice. I don't think you just work crossovers as in a regular practice. I could see lots of sprinting, maybe doing suicides? I think the idea is to improve your speed and your stride, etc... Not stuff you can teach without having taken a course.
TBH, I don't think you can just run a powerskating practice; I think it's more like a hockey camp solely for skating. Flaws in your players' skating are to be corrected, proper instruction given... Apologies if I'm underestimating your knowledge of skating stride.
EDIT: After re-reading the OP, I guess you know more about powerskating lessons than I do
