Teaching Science in a corrections classroom


A couple of weeks ago, we discussed teaching math to students with learning disabilties. This began the series on teaching in different content areas in corrections. This week, I'dl like to discuss how science is taught in the corrections classroom. From the article, Teaching and Reaching Students Behind Bars, the author states: "Here is your challenge as a teacher," SaviAtsky said. "Come up with a lesson plan that requires minimal materials. Ask students to use nothing sharper than a crayon. Students cannot take any work home, and have no access to outside resources like the internet. 

How do you teach Science? What innovative ideas can you share for your colleagues? 

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
