PostSubject: DADA: Lesson Three (Years 5-7)   Tue Jul 03, 2018 9:24 pm

For the final lesson of the year, Jake had come to decide that the older years had covered pretty much the whole syllabus they would need. However, a number of the spells they might not have looked at for some time, so Jake had decided on something much more dynamic this lesson. He was not going to introduce anything new this lesson, he would instead use the lesson as a revision lesson for his upperclassmen.

That was why the board currently denoted a few words.

What aren't you good at?

That was today's lesson. A free space for the upperclassmen to put forth their ideas of what they wanted to practice. Unless it was a creature, Jake would be able to show them all the practical spells they could ever want in this lesson, allow them to explore the spells they weren't so competent with, and raise queries on areas they were struggling with.

Turning the tables was, often times, a good way to help students learn more, because it would insist that they focus on the weakest areas. It was, however, going to make today's lesson quite individualistic. Therefore, once students started to arrive, Jake would explain that they were to think over spells, creatures or theories in the syllabus for which they weren't sure, and then come to him with the topic. They would then work through getting better in that area, either as a whole, or individually depending on whether other's in the room needed more help.

Defence Against the Dark Arts had never been Nerisei's favourite lesson, but it was a necessary evil, so instead of whining, the young witch had gave up on trying to find a way out of it, and  instead decided to attend. The reason why she didn't truly want to attend though, it was because Dimitri liked to attend anything that had to do with Charms, since it was his strength, and the Ravenclaw witch was simply not in the mood to have a pair of eyes glaring at her throughout the lesson. Hoping, though, that the Moreau heir wouldn't make an appearance, was all she could do at the moment.

Sighing, Neri grabbed her books and carefully placed them in her bag, before exiting the Library, that had been a very uncomfortable place for her, these past months. After the fight she had had with Dimitri, it was obvious that everyone knew that the Ravenclaw romance was over, and that Nerisei was nothing but a whore, apparently. The young witch still couldn't believe how the man she had feelings for, for years, had called her something so... hurtful. Especially after he had broken her time and time again. It was sad and pathetic. He was pathetic.

Pushing the door open, Nerisei gave the Professor a small, polite smile and a 'Hello', before  her eyes landed on the board. Her eyebrows furrowed in confusion, and the Ravenclaw witch cocked her head to the side in confusion.

What aren't you good at?

Love, apparently, she thought, but of course did not voice her thoughts. Sighing, the witch waited for the rest of the class to fill up, since she was the first to arrive in some time, whilst thinking what exactly she wanted to practice. Though, to be honest, the only thing she could come up with was a fair amount of hexes.

It was Sasha's last year in the school. Also, it was one of the few classes for her. She already wished she was graduating so she could move on with her life more. Just a few more months before she could do it.

DADA was always something she kind of did look forward. Those classes always seem to be interesting ones and something that she did enjoy most of her days. She will probably miss these classes after she graduates.

Her life seemed to go well now when she didn't really have to think about her parents. She hasn't talked with them since the Christmas. She has now been engaged already for a while and everything between her and Jackson seems to go well too. She is glad that everything has worked out between them. She can't really imagine nowadays her life without him.

The girl walked int the classroom with her usual smile on her face. She did greet the professor and looked at the board there now. Seems like she needs to figure out on what she needs to learn still. Well in what she isn't good at.

This was something that won't be a very easy task. Maybe some fighting spells or then something simpler. She needed to think about it before she will give her answer.

Once more Jake's classroom had filled with students, each looking to the board, curious with today's lesson, before they fell quiet, trying to work out what his words had meant. Jake's eyes scanned across the classroom, wondering what his students would come up with, what they would want to recap. The syllabus was wide, of course, they could cover anything. All the students would have to do is come forth with their chosen weak subject, and they would go through it.

When the clock struck the hour, and the last of the students came in to the room, Jake cleared his throat, denoting the lesson was about to start.

"Okay, everyone, welcome back to another lesson of Defence Against the Dark Arts, I trust you're all well, and ready to get moving with today's lesson." Jake started, looking around the faces eagerly, before motioning to all of the students there already. "Today's lesson is a reversal of what you might normally be used to, but this is a good learning tool. Today, we will be looking at the spells, the theory, the effectiveness of your casting, and much more, that you feel you're not strong with. If you put forth your ideas, we can work through these things as a group.

"Obviously, today we will not be able to work with the dark creatures upon the syllabus, but if you make me aware of some you're interested in revisiting, I will do so in our next lessons before your exam. So, without further ado, who would like to offer up the first topic for today's lesson?" Jake posed the question, looking around each of the faces within the classroom expectantly.

It didn't take long for the class to fill with students, seeing that Jake Newbury was one of the most popular students around Hogwarts. He preferred being called just Jake, was an exceptional Professor, and was always there to help, if you needed anything. All in all, he was an excellent man, and the students saw those qualities in him. Nerisei had heard that the new Care of Magical Creatures Professor was equally as good, but unfortunately, her schedule had been way too full, and she had been unable to take the class, and check if the theory was correct.

After everyone was settled in class, Jake spoke up, explaining how today's lesson was going to be quite different, in comparison to the way it usually was. Today, Professor Newbury was not going to teach them anything new. On the contrary, he was going to spend all of the time given, in order to help his students practice anything they felt they didn't really know well. Nerisei believed that many students, including herself, had a lot of things they wanted to ask him, but the witch was going to wait before she jumped into action.

"Obviously, today we will not be able to work with the dark creatures upon the syllabus, but if you make me aware of some you're interested in revisiting, I will do so in our next lessons before your exam. So, without further ado, who would like to offer up the first topic for today's lesson?"

A moment.

Two.

The Ravenclaw witch took a good look around the class, noticing that no student made a move to speak up, though whether that was because they knew everything --which was highly unlikely--, or because they were too scared to reveal that they were lacking in some department, Neri did not know. "Could we practice Confringo, Jake?" Nerisei asked, feeling up to challenging herself. Not to mention, that the witch already had a target in her head.

Jake only had to wait a few moments before someone spoke up, and his features lit up when they fell on the Ravenclaw who was taking this opportunity for all it was worth! Listening to her explain that she wished to try Confringo made Jake nod for a moment, before taking out his wand. "Good choice, Miss Gerber!" Jake replied, flicking his wand to the cupboards at the back of the room which started to empty some very well used -- and somewhat broken -- items that they could use to practice upon.

"For those of you unsure of what Nerisei had just asked, she is referring to the Blasting Curse, the incantation in Confringo, as Nerisei just pointed out. A very good spell for stress relief, I've found, but has many, many uses. Whilst I would not recommend using it to cool off in school -- the Headmistress will likely have your guts for garters -- it is definitely a useful spell." Jake acknowledged, before motioning to the breakable items that had now appeared behind the students.

"So, without further ado, cause as much havoc as you like, I'll come 'round and help those who need it." Jake proposed, setting them off to the task.

Sasha had heard the Jake speak awhile she tried to think the spell what she needs to still practise there. In the end, she had so many different spells in her mind and the girl wasn't sure which one would be a good idea to practice really. Before the head girl could have a decision in her mind she heard Nerisei offer to practice Confringo spell there now.

She didn't really mind practising that. She had thought about that spell herself too actually for a second a few minutes ago. She nodded her head there now. She looked at the items there now. She wondered what one she should try to practise it on. She knows she needs t get involved at least using the spell. So she can earn some house points there.

She at the end did choose the vase there. It seemed to be easy enough. She took a deep breath and then pointed her wand at her target. "Confringo," said there in the whisper basically. At the first try, it didn't work. So the Hufflepuff girl tried it again but this time a bit louder voice and it sent the vase flying towards the wall, what wasn't really very far from the vase. It was just was behind it. She was glad it had worked.

Harper had slipped into the class at the last moment, barely having a chance to glance at the board before Jake cleared his throat, indicating the lesson was about to start. As she listened to the professor speak she racked her brain for the spell she was worst at, not really able to come up with anything, for she practiced most of the spells over and over until they were clear and precise and tucked into their spot in her memory.

She was just about to look through her DADA book and search for any spells she might be a bit rusty with when another girl spoke up. She closed the book, relieved to have someone else give an answer, for they could focus on that instead. Confringo was a fine spell anyways, and would work out and make it a relatively easy class for her this morning.

As Jake released them to practice the blasted curse, (ha, get it? Blasted curse, it's the blasting curse?) she gave herself a mental high five, grinning as she moved over to a couple chipped ceramic plates. She murmured the curse firmly and watched the plate fly at the wall, though slightly crooked. She frowned, feeling a hint of frustration and tried again, this time a bit more aggressively. The plate flew in even more a slant, breaking against the wall into a million pieces. She grit her teeth and sent a fourth one, grating the incarnation out as it flew sideways, narrowly missing another student.

She winced, apologizing to the other student quickly and sighing, before calming herself down some and trying again. The plate flew straight and she had to keep from whooping out loud.

Jake watched quietly as the students tried the spell as he'd instructed, making sure to keep an eye for any errant spells, or objects. There were a couple, of course, which went astray, but nothing ever collided with the students as Jake quickly muttered a spell to send it off in another direction -- safely away from all.

The Head Girl smashed a vase against the wall, and Jake smiled at the progress, before motioning for her to try again.

Then, Jake's eyes noted another, younger witch giving it a go. Each attempt of Harper's flew off in slanted directions, but that was okay. Basics were a start, and the fact the spell was working was a good basis. "Well done, Harper!" Jake congratulated the Hufflepuff in the moment she sent a plate in the right direction, a satisfying smash echoing around the room.

"The progress was really good, make sure to keep your mind focused on what you intend to happen -- that's what keeps the trajectory of the spell where you're expecting it to go." Jake explained, hoping this would help.

For a few more moments, Jake allowed the students to continue on with their work, before he clapped his hands to get everyone's attention.

"Right, so, now we've had fun smashing things -- thank you Miss Gerber, the house elves will be busy! -- lets get back together. What else would you like to practice today?" He offered to the class, looking round to see who would want to offer the next subject.
