**copied first post from last years thread by the lovely Prof. Cassandra Lobiesk**

Want to know what classes you should take this year? Craving some more information and what each of the classes have to offer?

You can find out in this thread!

This post will contain information regarding the classes the HOL professors and student teachers are hosting. If you want all of your class information in one go, this is the best place to look!

If you have more questions regarding a certain class, please contact the professor/student teacher. E-mailing your professors or student teachers to see if you can join their class MIGHT make them cranky, so try not to do that. XD

Are you brave and adventurous? So you like the thrills and chills and spills of dangerous sports?

Sign up for Broom Race - The Race Across Sweden!

The class site is here and the HOL Sub-Forum for the class is here.

Professor Dom Gaidin started this class a couple of years ago and has allowed Professor Cosmo B. Mott and me to continue it. We are doing our best to come up with all sorts of fun Challenges for the different Stages. Professor Gaidin is assisting us in making sure the Challenges are true and correct and ... well, up to his very stringent standards.

Also, an incentive to those who attempted the Course before ..... Professor Mott (who used to be student Cosmo Brown) won the race both times it has been held.

So the Swedish Short-Snout Trophy will be going to someone new! Can it be YOURS?

HEY! Hey you! Yes, you!

Are you having trouble picking your classes? Are you looking for classes that are fun and not too hard to pass? Then I have two amazing classes for you...

Oceanology and Poetry for Beginners!

Yes, that's right, a class about oceans, and a class about poetry! Let's begin with Oceanology.


Oceanology is a class where you learn about the ocean habitat and the life in the oceans. Topics such as sea exploration and mammals in the ocean are discussed. The syllabus is below (taken from class website):

Lesson 1: Introduction and Sea Exploration

Lesson 2: Ocean Motion (Waves and Tides)

Lesson 3: Dolphins, Whales, and Sharks

Lesson 4: Fish, Plankton, and Coral

Month #5: Final Exam and Class Project


To pass Oceanology and get a quill is pretty simple. All you have to do is earn 150 points out of the full 300 points and do the final exam! The final exam is mandatory. There is a points breakdown below(also from class website):

Points Available:
Homework: 120 points total

Extra Credit: 100 points total

Final Exam: 30 points total

Class Discussions (Check the class discussion area regularly, you never know when they could come up): 20 points total

Class Project: 30 points total

For any questions, concerns, or information, please check out the Class Forum in the HOL Forum.

Make a note, this is not a do-it-at-your-own-pace class. Each month there will be an assignment that needs to be completed by the end of the month, unless you have an extension.


Finally, there are the awards! The awards are(from class site):

Awards:

Underwater Explorer - This is the first of three awards you can earn in this class. It is awarded to students for participation. To earn it you simply have to do all homework, extra credit, exam, project, and discussion.

Underwater Expert - This is the second award and is given to the top student of each house. One for Slytherin, one for Hufflepuff, one for Ravenclaw, and one for Gryffindor!

Dive in! Award - This is awarded to a first year who we feel has made outstanding progress and works their hardest.

Special Note: This class was at first taught by Abigail Chalmers and assisted by Serenity Thomas, who left the class due to personal reasons. The amazing Eno Kule took over with his assistant Zoki Phantom, but then Eno also left the class. With permission to take over, this class is now being offered again by me, Hermionie Miranda, and my awesome assistant Zoki Phantom. Thus, all lesson, assignment, and award copyright belongs to Abigail Chalmers.

For more information, check out the class website here, and the class forum here.


Okay! Up next, is Poetry for Beginners!

Poetry for Beginners is a class where aspiring poets take their beginning steps to learn how to write poetry with four simple styles of poetry. Poetry lovers may also take this class to improve or use their skills to gain a quill. This class is being taught by Hermionie Miranda and assisted by the lovely Arnora Eleniel. The syllabus is below:

Lesson 1-Introduction to Poetry and Free-Style Poetry
Lesson 2- Couplet
Lesson 3- Haiku
Lesson 4- Diamante

To pass this class and receive a quill all you need to do is earn at least 120 points and do the Final Exam. Everything is mandatory EXCEPT the class project. To figure out what you can do to earn your points, look at the points breakdown:

4 homework assignments-Each 30 points
4 extra credits-Each 30 points
1 class project-30 points
1 final exam-30 points

Each month you will have your assignment and extra credit that needs to be turned in by the due date which is the end of the month, unless you have an extension. The only thing you can turn in anytime is the class project.

Finally, here are the awards!

Licensed Poet Award- Given to those who have completed all the class work, and got a decent number of points on all the work.
Modern Shakespeare Award- Given to those who impressed me during the whole term.
House Poet Award- Given to the two top points earner for each house.
Poet of the Month- Given to one person each month for the best poem written for a certain month's EC.

For more information check out the class website here, and the discussion area here.



Remember, for both classes, if HOL rules are broken, there WILL be consequences. So I hope to see lots of students in both classes!

Are you a huge comic book fan? Do you enjoy thinking about the possibilities of having superpowers of your own? Do you like reading and learning about many different superheroes and their powers/abilities? Are you at least willing to learn about superheroes from the Justice League and X-Men?

Well, if you answered yes or maybe to ANY of those questions listed above, then you should definitely think about taking Factions of Superheroes!

You can find the link to the class website here. There, you will find absolutely everything and anything you will need to be successful in my class.

In fact, I'll even post the course syllabus for your convenience below:

Lesson One: X-Men
Lesson Two: Fantastic Four
Lesson Three: Justice League
Lesson Four: The Avengers

So, I hope many of you will consider taking this class because if there is a fantastic turn out, there may be a sequel to this class coming up next term. ;)

Knitting the Muggle Way

Have you ever thought that knitting (much like the bow tie and the fez) is cool? Have you imagined making yourself a Hogwarts scarf? Do you want to just make something with your hands, and know that it will be useful?

If so, this is the class for you!

Over the course of four lessons, you'll learn the basics (and then some) of knitting: how to cast on, how to knit and purl, and how to bind off. (In fact, by the end of Lesson Two, you'll know enough to knit your own Hogwarts scarf!) By term's end, if you've done all the assignments, you'll have five washcloths, practical and lovely and great as gifts.

The various instructions are written, but there will also be optional videos to watch, if you learn better that way.

Click here to visit the site and take a look at the first two lessons (videos will be forthcoming, I promise, but the start of term). And if you have any questions, just shoot me a PM or an email or something.

It's that time of the year again! Time to pick your classes for the new term! Aren't you excited?
If you are having troubles deciding which classes to take, think no more! I have two interesting and fun options for you!

Care of Magical Pets
One Term Class

Pets are mentioned in the Harry Potter series, but not too much is known about them, so if you have ever wondered why, among the great variety of fantastic beasts out there, J.K. Rowling chose toads, cats, and owls, as allowed pets in Hogwarts; or maybe you are just curious about how to take care of these animals, then continue reading because this may be the class just for you!

In Care of Magical Pets, you will learn facts and interesting things of the animals students at Hogwarts love the most: toads, cats and owls! Learn how they are related to magic, how they are perceived by the muggle community, and of course learn the best way to take care of them! At the end of each lesson a Hall of Fame is awaiting you, where only the best pets have managed to get there!

Four Lessons, four assignments, four extra credits, a special project, and a final exam, as well as an opportunity to earn 300 points, a quill, and 4 amazing awards, is what this class offers you!

Please visit the class website HERE to find more information regarding the course, lessons and assignments

-----------------

Magical Mexico
Full-Year Class

Come along and prepare yourself for this fantastic journey around most important aspects of Mexican history, culture, and traditions! Important characters, memorable events, delicious food, spooky legends, beautiful traditions, and much, much more is awaiting you!

Please be my guests and let me guide you in this unique adventure. Through each of the nine lessons we will be studying the most important aspects of Mexican culture. Each lesson will be about a special tradition or event that is celebrated in each month, and in case one month doesn’t have a major celebration, fear not! We will talk about another aspect like Literature, Sports, Art or Cinema.

600 points, 2 quills, and 4 awards. What else can you ask for?! Magical Mexico has all that for you!

Interested? Please make sure to take a look at the class website HERE to find more information about the class, and the complete syllabus.

Don't be afraid, give yourself the opportunity to learn about another country and culture! I promise you we will have lots of fun!
Magical Mexico, a journey you don't want to miss, a journey you won't regret!!

Hooooray!

HOL 2010/2011 is already on a huge roll! The amount of new members for this summer is amazing and for all of you newbies there is one class that would be very useful for you to take...

HOL 101!

If you're confused with everything on HOL and would like a simpler way of figuring your way around, HOL 101 would be an excellent place to start. HOL 101 will teach you about your HOL house, Quidditch, the who's who of HOL, and many other sections around this wonderful site.

Click HERE to check out the class.

When Muggles and Magic Collide

Over the centuries, non-magic folk and those of the Wizarding world have been living side-by-side; basically, next door neighbors. Those of which we refer to as 'muggles' (or people who do not posses the ability to perform magic) have been kept in the dark about the existence of wizards and witches and their magic, but many have wondered why that has been necessary over all of these years. What caused witches and wizards to create a secret world with an immense distrust and superiority complex over the muggle world? At the end of the term, that will be your conclusion to make.

Within this class we will discuss many various topics and theories as to why this has happened:

Outline
Lesson One: Muggles, Magic, and the Wizarding World: The Beginning of Double Standards.
Lesson Two: Misconstruing Magic
Lesson Three: The Ministry of Magic: The Governing Body of the Magical World
Lesson Four: Unlawful Persecution - Including the Salem Witch Trials: The Cause, Myth, and Aftermath

Interested? Click HERE to see more!

___

And new this year for the first time is...

When Muggles and Magic Collide II No way.

The ideas behind WMMC II will be the same as the riginal class, but you will have four new lessons to choose from.

Overview:
Lesson One: The Evolution of Magic
Lesson Two: Blood Collision
Lesson Three: Muggles and Magic
Lesson Four: Making Magic

Click HERE to view this class a little bit more.

You do not have to take WMMC I to take WMMC II and you are not limited to taking only one per semester. If you want to take both in a term, you are more than welcome.



So, I look forward to seeing you all around!

FANTASTIC BEASTS!

Fantastic Beasts is a full year class which looks at a whole range of fascinating creatures! This class uses Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, written by Newt Scamander, as a guide.

EXCITING CREATURES!
We study 31 creatures in total including the flobberworm, centaur, merpeople, basilisk, lethifold, kneazle, salamander, dragons, unicorn, puffskein, ashwinder, billywig, troll, sphinx, manticore, red cap and MORE!

AWARDS!
I know you love awards and in this class you have the opportunity to earn two (with more to come!). So far:
- "Fantastic Beasts Expert" is given to the people who correctly guess all 8 beasts from the monthly 'Creature Feature'.
- "FB Artist of the Month" is given to the people who submits the most creative extra credit.

CREATURE FEATURE AND CREATIVE CHALLENGES!
Each month you will be given a "Creature Feature" as part of your extra credit. What is this you ask? It's a clue that describes a creature from the FB book, simply guess which beast I am talking about and you'll receive 10 points! Guess them all during the year and receive an award. The creative challenge is the second part of your extra credit where you either DRAW a beast or WRITE a diary entry. The best picture and diary entry receives an award and everyone who attempts it receives points.

Are you a linguophile in search of something new and different? Do you speak multiple languages and want to challenge yourself? Or, perhaps you want to learn a language not many people speak? If so, then Beginning Hungarian is the class for you!

In this class, you will learn the basics of Hungarian so that by the end of the year, hopefully you'll be able to understand, speak, and write some Hungarian. You will learn the history of the language, pronunciation, spelling, vocabulary, nouns, pronouns, verbs, and modifiers--everything you need to know to construct intelligible if simple sentences.

For an idea of what to expect, visit the class site HERE

Hope to see some of you in the class!

Wizarding Science
(full year class)

How does magic work? How is magical ability transmitted from one generation to another? How does an invisibility cloak work? What about Bertie Bott's beans? How can there be so many flavours? Ever wonder how Time Turners work?

If you've ever asked yourself questions about the Wizarding World, especially how stuff works, this is the class for you!

Wizarding Science is a full year class (September-June). This class will be composed of 10 lessons (5 each term). Each month, we'll focus on a different aspect of magic and its links to science, everything from magical genetics, to broomsticks, to the Sorting Hat. Basically, we'll try to explain how things work in a scientific manner. Lessons for the first term will focus more on magical theory and the basis of magic (what is magic, transfiguration, genetics...), while second term lessons will focus more on specific topics related to magic (invisibility, alchemy...). There's bound to be something to satisfy the curiosity of every budding wizard and/or scientist. In order to earn a quill each term, you must earn a minimum of 120 points.

For more information, please consult the Class Website.


Arithmancy
(1 term class)

Numbers are all around us. Arithmancy deals with the study of numbers and how they influence ours lives.

This 1 term class (September-January) will examine what your name and birthdate say about your personality and your destiny. It will also examine other ways that numbers influence our world. We will learn about the Golden Ratio and how nature is all about ONE perfect number. We will also discuss patterns, and how art and music are methods of counting and sharing numbers. All in all, this class will help you look at numbers in a totally new way.

This class is composed of 5 lessons (there is no final exam or project), each of which will focus on one specific topic. Assignments are due at the end of each month, and you must earn a minimum of 120 points in order to earn a quill.

For more information, please consult the Class Website.

We had a lot of fun visiting Hogsmeade last year, so I hope you enjoy this trip as well. A Visit to Diagon Alley is a different type of class. It's not too serious, but gives enough information for students to learn more about the shops. All classwork has one due date and students can turn in homework anytime between Sept. 1st and Jan. 15th. No extensions will be given, and all lessons and assignments will be up on September 1st.


Would you rather spend your evenings gazing out of the Astronomy Tower?

Astronomy

Come with us as we discover what is in space and learn something new. This is a full year class with a chance to earn two quills and 600 points.

Class Website: HERE

Course Syllabus:

Lesson 1: Introduction -September
Lesson 2: Astronomers - October
Lesson 3: The Universe and Galaxies– November

I've enjoyed teaching Astronomy the past two years and hope to see many new faces this year!

Last by certainly not least, Dumbledore's Army. Order of the Phoenix is my favorite Harry Potter book, so I wanted to pay it tribute.

Class website: HERE

Class Syllabus:

Lesson 1: Why was Dumbledore’s Army Created
Lesson 2: The Members of the DA
Lesson 3: The Ministry of Magic and Lord Voldemort
Lesson 4: The Battle at the Ministry
Term Project: Create your own Army
Final Exam

This is more of a discussion type class. How do you think Dumbledore's Army changed the characters? Come ready to think and opinions of all sorts are welcome, just make them respectable.

YAY! You have received your letter of invitation to attend Hogwarts! You look at the list of required things to bring to school and see the word WAND.

So of course, when you visit Diagon Alley ... you visit Ollivanders (in business since 382 bc). But, but, he's on vacation!? NOW WHAT?

You make your OWN wand, that's what!

Come look at Wand-Making and find out if you would like to make your very own wand. Symbologies of woods (and other substances), lengths, cores and other things are discussed -- as well as practicalities of how to actually make your wand. All the lessons are up. The assignments will be posted in each month in which they are due.

The class subforum is located here. Any sorts of questions or notifications of assignments received or listing of awards earned will be there. If you have a question before you sign up, please do ask!
