So after discussing the schedule with Professor Yukimi, I think I've got a handle on what you all are giving in class. I'll be picking up where he left off, of course, but adding a few of my own personal touches here and there.
In any case, here are your assignments for the week. They are due at most, on Sunday
. (Though I'm sure you all want to enjoy Valentine's Day, so feel free to hand them in early.)First Years - Second Years: Dark Creatures;
Please write an essay on the following subject: Hinkypunks
. Include the traits that make them identifiable, where they can be found, and ways that you can defend yourself from them. For extra credit, you may include an additional 10-15cms on the history behind their discovery/the discovery of their countermeasures. Minimum 20 cm. (with extra credit, 30cm) Third Years - Fourth Years: Dark Creatures;
Please write an essay on the following subject: Grindylow
. Include the traits that make them identifiable, where they can be found, and ways that you can defend yourself from them. For extra credit, you may include an additional 10-20cms on the history behind their discovery/the discovery of their countermeasures. Minimum 35 cm. (with extra credit, 50cm) Fifth Years
: Please write an essay on Necromancy
. I'll be paying close attention to your word choice in describing its history. It's important to portray that you understand
the material, so please try to write it in your own words. Also, for extra credit, you may include an additional 20-40cms on any notable past usages or modern takes on this form of magic. Minimum 50 cm. (with extra credit, 70cm) Sixth - Seventh Years
: Protego Totalum Practical
. You will be expected to create the largest barrier you can with your abilities. The larger it is, the higher your grade. I will be working alongside Professor Yukimi in this evaluation (so if you don't get it on your first try, I'm afraid I can't help you.)
[[(copy-pasted for your convenience:)
For sixth - Seventh, the floor will be set up with something along these lines. Except.. more round and less crappy. A glass will be set up on the outer rim of each circle. Each student will be asking to cast Protego Totalum with an attempt to make the largest protective bubble they can. Depending on which glasses were spared, will determine their grade.
Say how they did, but I don't want a ton of "they made the biggest bubble ever." This will be a fast paced assignment and if your character doesn't do well under pressure or isn't a fast thinker, they probably didn't do so well.
