But this instructable can help.
Following these simple steps, you can pass High School, and do the bare minimum of work over a given amount of time!
Step 1: Receive Assignment
Something you should be doing
and something that you're doing instead.
In this step, you will receive your assignment from your teacher/instructor/mentor/warden/ etc... Remember, the bigger the assignment, the better, as it allows more time for your second requisite.
Step 2: Read and Understand Your Assignment
It's no good to pretend to be doing science work in math class, so pay attention to what you're supposed to be doing!
Step 3: If the Teacher Is in the Room...
If he and/or she is not looking, you're good for whatever it is you want to be doing.
Step 4: If There Is No Teacher Around...
Pull out an iPod, cell phone, a book (if you're into that kinda stuff.) and enjoy yourself.
Note: For the most part, be on your guard in case your teacher re-enters the room from a different entrance.
This technique is called "Skulking Around," or, as it is more commonly known as, the "Holy Crap, where did Mrs. Ernst come from!?!"
Step 5: Bonus Tip!
And remember, like Ells says, "Appearing to work is half the battle."
