This is your last year in Defense Against the Dark Arts. Looking out at all of you, some of you have made leaps and bounds in your magical prowess. Others of you are lucky to have made it this far. If you fall into the latter category, you have this last year to whip yourselves into shape, and this…
In previous years and previous lessons, we have covered a variety of curses. However, there are two types of curses that we have ignored, and that will be remedied in these next two lessons. Today, we will be exploring different types of long-standing curses, and next lesson we will focus exclusive…
Last class we covered a broad group of curses - the long-standing curses, with emphasis on the Familial Curse. Today, we will be getting much more specific and focusing on three curses in particular: The Unforgivable Curses. Before we begin, let me make this clear. You will not be casting these cur…
Welcome back. During our last class session, we finished our coverage of Dark spells by discussing the effects, and human rights implications, of the Unforgivable Curses. This does not mean that no further Dark spells will be mentioned, but they will not be the focus of our lessons from here out. T…
Today we will be talking about a personal favorite topic of mine. While I enjoy discussing all facets of the Dark Arts and how to defend against them, there is something about this topic that I find truly fascinating. Perhaps it is how, historically, dragons have been seen as both friend and foe, o…
With creatures and spells behind us, it is time we start talking about topics we have rarely breached in this class: other forms of the Dark Arts. These include Dark artefacts, Dark potions, and Dark practices. Each of these categories will be the focus of the remainder of our year, starting with D…
I hope you are all actively studying your notes. The N.E.W.T.s are coming upon you quicker than you expect, and if any of you are hoping to earn high marks on them in this course, you will have to be well prepared. As a reminder, you will be expected to know information from all seven years of your…
Welcome to your penultimate Defense Against the Dark Arts lesson. Today we will begin delving into topics that, in the views of many of my colleagues, are too Dark to even be mentioned. However, you all should be aware of the evils that you could face. Just because others refuse to talk about it do…
So, assuming you manage to survive this final class session, you will nearly be done with your seventh and final year here at Hogwarts. All that will remain is to take, and pass, your N.E.W.T.s. I will not be assessing them, the same way I did not assess your O.W.L.s, but be assured I will be watch…
In this final course for Defense Against the Dark Arts, we will be exploring the worst aspects of the Dark Arts. Using the lens of human rights, we will be looking at the most evil Dark Arts, exploring why they violate basic human rights, and how to defend ourselves against them if it is at all possible. This will be the most rigorous term in Defense Against the Dark Arts, so do not enter the classroom lightly or with a faint heart.
