Tips

  • Don't look suspicious while you are listening to music and play the songs on a playlist so you don't have to keep changing it and getting caught.
  • Don't do this every day or it will get suspicious.
  • If it's in your pocket, try keeping your finger on the pause button so if the teacher calls on you, you're ready to listen and answer.

Warnings

  • Some teachers are good at picking up on these tricks. Don't try this with a really strict teacher. It's better to do it in classes with laid-back teachers.
  • If the teacher catches you, don't try to lie. It won't work. There is really no excuse to have a cord up your sleeve.
  • Some teachers use their laptop to find Bluetooth devices. Watch out!
  • Don't play your music too loudly; make sure others around you can't hear it.
  • If the teacher happens to call on you, don't talk really loud as if you can't hear them well.
  • Don't sit with your arm up to your ear the whole class, it will seem like you are up to something.

Things You'll Need

  • jacket
  • iPod or other MP3 player
