1) Write the note while nodding, as if transfixed by the teacher’s lesson. (Bonus: She’ll think you’re taking copious notes on her lesson.) Fold it in half and then in quarters— being superquiet. Cough a little to cover up any excess noise-age.
2) Identify your desired target, and pass carefully. For example, if the target sits behind you, casually put your hand behind your back as if to stretch, keeping your eye on the teacher the entire time. If coast is clear, drop note.
3) If target is sitting to either side of you, just pass it really fast when the teacher isn’t looking.
4) If target is sitting in front of you, tap him or her on the shoulder for a head’s up and drop note. Keep your eye on the teacher, and if he or she looks in your direction or so much as raises an eyebrow, thwart plan immediately.
Helpful Hint: If you have someone you regularly pass notes to—like your BFF—it’s wise to have a note-passing code, like two coughs and a throat clear. This way, you both know when to be on your game.
Beware: Never drop a note on the floor because someone else besides the target could pick it up. This can only lead to trouble, as he or she could confiscate the note, read it, or even in extreme cases—tell on you.
Male teachers are more apt to read notes aloud, whereas female teachers are more likely to catch you in the process. Beware!
