“The Dark Arts,” said Snape, “are many, varied, ever-changing, and eternal. Fighting them is like fighting a many-headed monster, which, each time a neck is severed, sprouts a head even fiercer and cleverer than before. You are fighting against that which is unfixed, mutating, indestructible.”

--Professor Snape in his book, Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince


Greetings! My name is James (j_belletto), professor for Defense Against the Dark Arts! Before we get started, please look over these rules.

General Rules
- You must, obviously, be a member of castlehogwarts before you can participate in this class.

- Do not be rude to any of your classmates under any circumstance. If there’s some problem, contact me (my e-mail address is at the bottom), and I’ll resolve it.

- When posting anything, PLEASE put your house at the bottom. I would like the name or number of the assignment in the Subject Line, but if you put your house there its ok too.

- Use the most proper grammar you can, especially for assignments. Typos happen and that’s fine, but an assignment must be legible and not littered with lol’s and omg’s to receive full credit. I am the "King of Typos" so I will understand.

Assignments
- All comments will be screened until the due date. I may allow for a one-week “grace” period on certain assignments, in which case the comments will be screened until then.
Translation: No cheating. However, some of my assignments I will make the posts unscreened. For these assignments I will require that your assignment, be different then other students. i.e. I might ask you to name a curse that might be used by a Dark Wizard. In this case I will reqire each of you to come up with a different one (therefore the unscreened post).

- Assignments will not be required, but this doesn’t mean you can just join and do one assignment out of twenty. Do as many as possible, as you will be kicked out for inactivity (unless you notify me during a hiatus). I will however will award bonus points at teh end of the term for student that have higher grades. Bonus points will be awarded as such: >100%-90% 150 points, 89%-80% 100 points, and 79%-70% 50 points. These points will be awarded to your house, as well as you points through out the term.

- You are allowed to have a life, I promise. If you have a time that you aren't going to be able to participate, just let me know, all assignments can be made up for full credit. If RL gets in the way, send me an Email, let me know. I also allow assignments late for 10% off, for every week late.

-New students will be able to make up all Assignment for full credit. They will have plenty of time. When a new student joins, I will let them know how long they have.

- I’ll try to be fairly regular on assignments, posting them as much as possible, unless I either have random inspiration and do more than that, or simply are delayed and do less.

- I also will try and Post optional assignments for students who want a little E.C.

- If any one has Ideas for Contests let me know. I'm always up for Ideas :)
New Students
Please fill this out when you join. Please find the Post that says "Welcome to DADA" and anwser the questions there. If you can't find it go ahead and post the Introduction below in the lastest post. I'll welcome you most likely and post it there so your classmate can get to know you a little.

Introduction



I hope we all have fun with this class! I know I will!
