One thing I learned from teaching

And this is definitive.

There is no such thing as telepathy.  People cannot read minds.

I have had so very many students staring at me so intently during an exam, as if willing the information to leap from my head to theirs, and it never. works.

I have often looked at students trying to find an answer or a word, projecting it madly in my head, to no avail

Sad but true.

We do not have this ability.  This I have learned.

You should just stare them down, and then just let out some kind of strange sentence, like "come on, I can see it's almost there, get it out! get it out!" :D
