Many students like to knit, use laptops, or eat during class, but some teachers don't allow these things. This chart can help you learn how your teachers feel. Remember though, even teachers who don't mind these things may still appreciate being asked, and many teachers will be more sympathetic if you explain why you like to knit, like if having something to do with your hands makes you less fidgety, and if you continue to participate.

If you have information about other teachers, please add it, but please be cautious about assuming teachers' approval. Try to go based on what they've said rather than what you've seen other students do. The notes sections are for concise clarifications; personal experiences that contribute towards a comprehensive answer should be added to the discussion page.
