I've found RIP to be a reasonable way to teach the concept of a  
routing protocol, since the protocol is very simple and you can always  
close with "don't ever use this".

But teaching classful routing and addressing is just moronic. It's a  
foundation that nothing is built on any more, and makes no sense to  
teach outside of a history class.

Yes, since you asked, but your presumption is faulty.
