DADA-201

Please read the following announcements before messaging Professor Kwan with questions. They may be answered here!

  1. All Year 2 essays have been revised as noted by the 'Updated June 3rd, 2024'  text underneath the prompts. We are allowing students who originally received 70% - 99% to retake these assignments should you want to. You must owl Professor Kwan with your assignment ID so she can verify your assignment was completed using the old prompt.

  2. Defense Against the Dark Arts receives a high number of assignments per day and per week. Our team is composed entirely of volunteers who have to manage their real lives as well. Please do not owl the team about grading your assignment if less than two weeks have elapsed.

  3. If you believe that an assignment has been graded unfairly, please message Professor Kwan or Lily Lavender with the assignment ID. Please ensure your message is respectful or your request/appeal will be denied.

  4. If you have questions about the course content, please owl Professor Kwan or any of the Professors' Assistants (PAs)!

  5. Updated July 17th. DADA PA Applications are open! Please head to the PA applications newsroom if you are interested in applying.
Well, I certainly hope you are all well-rested. While you have been enjoying your break, or perhaps working on other classes and getting relaxed, the Dark Arts have been stirring outside of these castle walls. Your first year of this course began to prepare you with the basics of what you will need…
*The students enter the classroom and find the lights slightly dimmed. In place of the typical desks are cushions. Professor Kwan is sitting on a cushion at the front of the classroom and indicates that students should find a cushion* I hope you all enjoyed the introduction to dueling you got in t…
Did you all have a good meditative experience since we last met? I know many of you are anxious to draw your wands and begin casting spells, but this meditation process is extremely important to your continued development in spellwork. This practice will not only help you in this course, but you wi…
I hope you all got beneficial, practical experience working on the spells you learned last class. Today we will be learning three curses that I think are extremely important for you to know, since curses are, for the more advanced witch or wizard, the staple of our offensive casting. CursesBefore …
Welcome back! I hope you all have spent time practicing the spells we learned last week. I’m sure you all noticed that, after a short duration, the spells wore off while you practiced them. As you progress through your O.W.L.s and into your N.E.W.T. level studies, these counter-curses will be…
I hope you all found the midterm to be appropriately difficult. I recognize that each of you is at a different place and I hope you will reflect upon your work during the first half of this term and use the midterm as an indicator of where you are. If you are struggling with understanding the conte…
I’m glad to see my previous lesson about fear has not frightened any of you away from the castle. I know I spend much time warning you about the dangers of the world - and frequently make it sound as though the world is a terrible place - but this is solely for your protection. It is my job t…
In our previous lesson, we began discussing a sub-branch of the Fear of the Physical, looking at the Fear of the Internal Physical, focusing on the Mackled Malaclaw and the poison that it can inject into the bloodstream. Fearing poison is a natural thing and is in no way considered a weakness. That…
And so we come to the end of our second term together. We have already covered a lot of information, but there is still so much to learn. In this final lesson, before you sit your examination, we will briefly look back and discuss a few minor details about the Trifecta of Fear that will help set us…
Defense Against the Dark Arts Year Two will continue building upon the foundation set in Year One. We will continue our exploration of spellwork, covering more offensive spells and getting into the basics of curse theory. We also will look at creatures with practical defensive uses.
