Theme of the legacy project will go hand in hand with the theme of Hogsmeade Literary Festival. While the project itself will not be limited to Muggles’ understanding of magic, such as the Festival had been, it will put great emphasis on Muggle works of literature. For better understanding of the material (for those who do not take Muggle Studies or are Muggleborn), fantasy and older literature is appreciated, but not mandatory.
The project itself is pretty straightforward. Anyone at Hogwarts, who frequently partakes in Muggle literature, will have a window of time to propose one, or more, books that will be read during the project. Out of all the books suggested, professors (or other people in charge of the project) will choose appropriate books, but still leave a lot of them choose from. It is imperative that books are not strictly assigned, as we want students to choose the books themselves based on their taste in genre.
After the students read the books they have chosen, they will have the option to do something creative with the story. They can either write a story based in the universe, write a poem, make a choose your own adventure, a podcast to be broadcast on WWW or, to make it more interesting, even make something with Muggle technology, such as a ‘movie’ trailer or anything else to their creative heart’s desire.
I think it will appeal to the Hogwarts students, because it will not be mandatory to do, though one might get some extra credit on Muggle Studies or in any other class, if they appropriately connect the subject to it. So there will be some incentive for them to participate, but not restrictive so they will not view it as homework. It will also appeal to their curiosity about Muggles, while also letting them know just what makes Muggles tick.
