And my psychology teacher was very good at pretending to not know
ANYTHING about what the kids were talking about. It was absolutely key
to the effectiveness of the lesson.

Easy enough to do with the PBJ exercise. You just need someone who can
pretend not to know what a knife, spoon, jar or any of the ingredients
are. And, of course, what a "sandwich" is.

I know this is not appropriate for children, but I'm reminded of one my
fondest memories from high school.

Every year, my favorite teacher (psychology) would put her students
through this exercise: Standing in front of the class, she would
proclaim herself to be an alien from another planet, and all she knows
is their language. The goal of the exercise was to instruct her as to
how to smoke a cigarette (she was a notorious heavy smoker). And she
would stand there doing EXACTLY what the students described for her to
do.
