Now I know we will be learning about Defensive Spells and about a few creatures in this class and I plan to make it fun and entertaining as well as educational but I will not tolerate excessive goofing off in my classroom. You are of course there to first: learn, second: have fun. I will dock house points and hand out detentions for those who do not follow the rules. If you proceed to break the rules you will be removed from the class.
Now I want you to be able to enjoy class and learn as much as you possible can. If something i'm teaching isn't clear, ask me. Do not be embarassed to ask questions because most likely there is at least one other person wondering the same thing. So ask lots of questions and get the most out of this class.
We will be studying certain defensive spells and creatures to help you learn to protect yourself as well as prepare you for the Advanced Defense Against The Dark Arts courses.
I have chosen, as do most professors to use the official O.W.L. & N.E.W.T. testing scale for the class. This is so students become familiar with the scores and the grades.
Lessons will be taught every two weeks. You will have homework assigned with each lesson that must be in by the due date or you will be docked points.
I will be giving a mid-term and a final. Questions for those tests will be pulled from various lessons and homework questions.
♦A wand, very important
♦Quill and Parchment for notes
♦Defensive Magical Theory by Wilbert Slinkhard
♦Practical Defensive Magics & Its Use Against the Dark Arts by Quentin Trimble
♦The Dark Forces: A Guide to Self-Protection by Quentin Trimble
To recieve a quill for my class you need to recieve an A or higher as a final grade (that is at least a 70%). Extra credit can be given if you need it but be warned it will not be very easy, and will only be given in certain circumstances. So please try to maintain a good grade by doing homework, tests, tasks, AND ROLE-PLAYING. You cannot pass this class if you do not abide by my roleplaying rules.
Lesson 3: Will last 2 weeks long
Will include practical application of the spells and a mission to face the creature.
