I am becoming a bigger fan of simulations. Mine are rudimentary but most students prefer them over classroom lecture.  In the future I will be looking for more ways to incorporate them with my limited resources.

In my situation, teaching in a prison, the students do not have access to technology.  I could try to provide more paper resources for them to look up when they are able.

I'm not sure it's relevant in my situation as students have little access to technology in the classroom since they are in prison.

Formative and Summative assessments are necessary for evaluation.
