Assignment 2 [25 Sep 2007|04:44pm]

[ mood | annoyed ]

Dark magic has been prominent in the magical community for as long as history can recall. If you go back to pinpoint any time in history, there will certainly be some "evil figure" trying to take over the world. In the 20th century, the two names that certainly stuck out were Grindelwald and Lord Voldemort.

For the next assignment in our Dark Magic unit, I would like for you to create a time line of dark magic in the Harry Potter world. To get the lowest grade, all you have to do is make a time line including both Grindelwald and Lord Voldemort. This alone will earn you 50 points. However, if you wish, use The Lexicon to find more dark witches or wizards that have been mentioned before. For each extra dark wizard or witch used besides Grindelwald and Lord Voldemort, you will earn 10 points.

This assignment will be due October 2nd at Midnight your time. Have fun!

Assignment 1 [10 Sep 2007|05:21pm]

[ mood | busy ]

Before I begin, let me remind you that answers to all assignments can be found at the Harry Potter Lexicon. However, if you’d like, you can even go to other sites for information.

For the first assignment of the term, we’re going to learn about Death Eaters. Death Eaters are the followers of Lord Voldemort, who all share a common goal to take control of the Wizarding World and to “purify” it of all Muggle-borns. They are not afraid to use the most brutal of curses to achieve this goal and are feared by many witches and wizards. The main group that opposes them are The Order of the Phoenix, a group created by Albus Dumbledore.

Many Death Eaters, after Lord Voldemort disappeared, insisted that they were put under the Imperius Curse to do his bidding. At this time, the Ministry of Magic had a handful of cases pertaining to this, and it was difficult to tell the true cases apart from the fake ones.

For the assignment, I would like for you to give me the names of 5 different Death Eaters and write a small biography about them and their purpose in the books. For Death Eaters that have only briefly been mentioned, I don’t expect a novel-length biography, but try to give me a little bit of information about them. If you happen to use a source other than the Lexicon, please link to it in your comment.

This assignment will be worth 50 points, and it will be due on September 24th.

Also, I apologize if this assignment is a little weak, I’m trying to get into the swing of being a teacher.
