Before you register:
- Think about how much time you are willing and able to make for your classes. Do not take more classes than you can manage. When you are in doubt how much work a course will be, you can always contact your teacher personally or ask students who attended that course before.
-  This is a school for magical subjects. If for whatever reason you cannot attend a class in which you are expected to actually perform magic, please make sure you only register for classes that have a "no" under "Spellwork". None of our professors are getting paid for what they do, and it is simply a nuisance if you have people leaving classes in the middle of term for issues they have with spellwork.

 

Ancient Runes I
Teacher: Professor Charlie, Slytherin
Teacher's comments: This is an introductory course for students with little or no previous experience with runes. In rune work, some knowledge of Norse mythology is helpful, but not a prerequisite.
Supplies needed: a set of runes (24 runes, Elder Futhark); you can buy one or make one yourself; you can find instructions in the Files section of the HH group.
Spellwork: yes

Student comments:

1. Before this course, you've had little, a lot, or no experience with runes?
none whatsoever
 2. You found this class...
just right
 3. You found the style of the lessons...
entertaining
 4. You found the length of the assignments
just right
 5. Which lesson was your favourite? Why?
 The one where we found out our name rune. I enjoyed seeing how accurate it was.
 6. Which lesson was your least favourite? Why?
 I don't think I had a least favorite, I enjoyed all of them very much.
 7. Do you have any suggestions, comments or ideas? What could be improved?
Nope. I thought the class was fantastic, I learned a bunch and I
really enjoyed working with the runes.
 8. Would you recommend this course to your fellow students?
In a heartbeat!
9. Are you planning on taking Ancient Runes II? If so, do you have any
 wishes as to the topics covered?
 Yes I am planning on taking it. I think the topics you mentioned above
sound extremely interesting and I can't wait to get started!
 
1. Before this course, you've had...
little experience with runes
2. You found this class...
a litte easy, and just right for a level 1 course
3. You found the style of the lessons...
very entertaining!
4. You found the length of the assignments
just right
5. Which lesson was your favourite? Why?
Lesson 9 was my favorite. It involved the most indepedant thought, and less memorization from the lesson texts. In my opinion, magic of all kinds requires our own personal touch and less "Step 23...add the eye of newt with the left thumb and pinkie...".
6. Which lesson was your least favourite? Why?
No least favorites, as I was not enrolled in the entire semester.
7. Do you have any suggestions, comments or ideas? What could be improved?
No suggestions or comments, again, as I likely merely missed the things I would love to see more of. I would like to see more data and information, or recommended reading lists or national / international groups with a focus on the subject matter in case we absolutely fall in love with the course and need more.
8. Would you recommend this course to your fellow students?
Yes! Absolutely! The more elements one can add to their magical work, the most horsepower they can raise. Also, it's a good introduction to a subject matter that's a not as traditionally seen in the communities that I've seen, and someone may really connect to these tools.
9. Are you planning on taking Ancient Runes II? If so, do you have any wishes as to the topics covered?
Absolutely. Topics covered, hmm, maybe having people report the results of their meditations on a rune, have them add runes to their routine muggle life and check for results, and / or see how the rune meanings (i.e. Mouth, Cow, Gift) are translated from a older Nordic world into the modern era.

1. Before this course, you've had . . .

none whatsoever.
2. You found this class . . .
just right.
3. You found the style of the lessons . . .
entertaining.
4. You found the length of the assignments . . .
just right.
5. Which lesson was your favorite? Why?
Lesson 7 on Bind Runes was my favorite. I liked learning the practical aspects of runes, how they can be used to influence your life.
6. Which lesson was your least favorite? Why?
I truly enjoyed all the rune lessons, but if I had to pick one as my least favorite, it would be Lesson 6, Name Runes. I didn't find the information on name runes as interesting as the other lessons.
7. Do you have any suggestions, comments or ideas? What could be improved?
The only thing I would have liked to see was a lesson on how to make your own set of runes, what stones/wood to use, what to use to draw/paint the runes, etc. Maybe in Ancient Runes II?
8. Would you recommend this course to your fellow students?
Most definitely.
9. Are you planning on taking Ancient Runes II? If so, do you have any wishes as to the topics covered?
Yes I will definitely take the second year of runes. I would like to see a lesson on how to make your own runes (see #7 above). I enjoyed working with them so much I was wanting to construct my own set.

2. How many classes did you still have at the end of term?  4
3. Which class are you answering this questionnaire for?  Runes 2
4. Which grade would you give the course on a scale from 1-10 (1=the
course sucked, 10=the course was great)?  10
5. On a scale from 1-10, how difficult was the course? (1=very easy,

assignments were appropriate?

7. Do you think the grades you got reflect your performance in that
class?
x yes
- no, I got better grades than I deserved
- no, I deserved better grades than I got
8. Do you have any comments or suggestions?
I really loved how there was some knowledge reading work, both in the text and independant research; but also mixed with practical applications of the lessons and real magic work with help and suggestions by a more practiced hand.  Especially with a subject like divination and runes where the interpretation part is the "art", it's nice to have backup.
9. Would you recommend the course to other students?
Absolutely!  If there is any interest in runes at all, tihs is definitely good.  Not only that, but as a good core root of knowledge, there is information such as associatoins that is universally appropriate and can boost all forms of magical expression.

busier this term than it was last year so I wasn't able to spend as
much time as I would have liked to on this class.
9. Would you recommend the course to other students?
Yes definatly.

8. Do you have any comments or suggestions?
I do not know why, but this class seemed to be much more involved and time consuming than the other 3 classes I took combined.  Perhaps it was the calculations and numerical format that made it seem more challenging, or the level of focus that I could give the homework (often do it at work while computer programs run).  I like the class, and I like the material, but it just seeemed like significantly more than the others.

Comments: assignments were manageable, not too difficult, but did take
up too much time. Or maybe that's cos I'm plain stupid ;)
Suggestions: might wanna reconsider the examples. German emperors and
composers are all very well, but how about somethin' a little more
recent? maybe do a life square for James Dean, Marilyn Monroe or John
Lennon? With the HP chars, it was Harry, Snape and Voldie in lessons
7/8 and 9, would have preferred a change in lesson 9.
Other than that, a great class, I learned bunches, count me in for
arithmancy ii!

Yes, but only if they're able to invest more than just an hour a week.

6. Comparing the assignments to the lessons, do you think the

- a bit too easy, but it can be nice to have a class in which you're not overworked; I'm overworked and underpaid in real life already...
7. Do you think the grades you got reflect your performance in that
class?
- yes
8. Do you have any comments or suggestions?

I'm not complaining about assignments being too easy, but they could indeed be a bit more creative. If you're asked "Do you have a pet? What are their names?" and are given credit for that, it's just not a very inventive or challenging question. The class was fun though, it just seemed that CM I was a bit more polished than CM II, that's all.
9. Would you recommend the course to other students?
yes, especially for students who are on a tight schedule but don't want to take a sabbatical
 

1. How many classes did you take at the beginning of term? I took four
classes at the beginning of this term.
2. How many classes did you still have at the end of term? I still have
all four classes. 
3. Which classes are you answering this questionaire for? 
And, Candle Magick 2, which is taught by Professor Gin
4. Which grade would you give this course on a scale from 1 thru 10? For, Candle Magick 2, i'd give it a 6.
5. On a scale from 1 thru 10, how difficult was this course? On a scale of 1
thru 10, i'd give Candle magick 2 a definate 2.
6. Comparing the assignments to lessons, do you think the assignments
were appropriate?
a) yes, just right.
7. Do you think the grades you got reflect your performance in that
class?
a) yes. b) no, I got better grades than I deserved. c) no, I deserved
better grades than I got. I feel I deserved the grades I got. Very fair 
8. Do you have any comments, or suggestions? 
Where Candle Magick 2 is conerned, Professor Gin is, also, a very
thoughtful, helpful, curtious, and very kind Profesor. Only, did not
feel as challenged in her class. Of which, i'm sorry to say. Can't
believe i'm complaing about assignments being to easy, but they were a
bit on the easy side. Just the same, her lessons were always clear, and
never to long, or drawn out. She had all the information given in her
lessons, and that was really helpful.
9. Would you recomend this course to other students? 
I would recomend this class, but only if my fellow class mate wanted an
easy course to fill some time. Hope that's not to mean ot say, but I
really did enjoy Candle Magick 1 and 2.

Care of Magical Creatures I
Teacher: Professor Wolf, Gryffindor
Teacher's comments: -

Spellwork: 
My class teaches the magickal attributes of the animals we share the world with, at least these first two terms.  I will be working on some true spells and magick (since it was asked for by popular demand) for Creatures III.  This term you can see the history, folklore, mysticism that has surrounded the animal I'm discussing, should you wish, you can invoke these attributes in time of need by means of magick or prayer.  Lesson number 5 will be some of my basic beliefs and they are very Shamanic, but I'm not asking you to agree with me.  My lessons are magickally based, but I do not ask you to preform spells or meditate, not this term anyway.

- no, I deserved better grades than I got
8. Do you have any comments or suggestions?
Nearly all of the homework questions could be answered by the text.  While that's good, and great for a busy bee like me, adding a little more external research might help reinforce the knowledge better than a "copy and paste" style.  As much as I hate to suggest it, possibly following Asmodis' example of "Explain why".  ;)
Oh, and if we could actually play with some of these creatures, that'd be great.  Work on that for the future, would you?  Teeheehee.  :P
 
9. Would you recommend the course to other students?
Absolutely!  Anyone who's ever played a video game, read a fantasy story, watched a movie, or been a pagan for 15 minutes or more will find some reference that they enjoy, and learn much more about them.
 
1. Have you heard of the terms mentioned above (e.g. totem, power animal, shapeshifting, astral travel) before, which ones? -Yes, everyone of them.
2. Do you believe in anything like or similar to what I have stated above, or do you think I知 down right crazy? -I believe in something similar, I have experiences of my own with the spirits on the astral plane. No you're not crazy, everyone has a right to their own opinions.
3. Did you understand everything I have written in my lessons? I知 hoping so as I have received no questions regarding any confusion. -Yes
4. Have you learned something new, if so what was it? -Everything in the previous lessons, I don't know much about creature on the mortal plane, just the astral one.
5. What do you think of this lesson and the previous four? -Very good
 
1.Have you heard of the terms mentioned above before, which ones?
I have heard of many of the terms mentioned. Whew, Astral Projection, Shape-Shifting, upper-realm, lower-realm, and physical realm, grounding (can't stress that enough!!!), dragons, wyverns, cyclops, dreams and meditations naturally, and Totems and Guides. I would definitely call you a stealth shaman (shamaness?), as I don't really remember you mentionining much training in that area, yet your beliefs parallel that system very closely.
2. Do you believe in anything like or similar to what I have stated above, or do you think I知 down right crazy?
While you may be crazy (as evidenced by your association with Professor Asmodis, hehehe), I absolutely believe in nearly everything you mention here. Unquestionably on most (such as astral travel, animal plant and stone messages, dreams, totems, guides, shifting, etc). I agree with you about some possibilities of the source of some creatures (Goooolly, what was that???), but I would also say that the "fish story" may have an element in the game as well. After all, sitting around the campfire, who wants to hear about the tortoise the size of the car that sits there and chews leaves, or the Giant Fire Breathing Armored Demon Dragon of Antilles who eats 30 men a day for breakfast! Come see, only 19.95!
3. Did you understand everything I have written in my lessons? I知 hoping so as I have received no questions regarding any confusion.
Your lessons are very understandable. Even as a novice, I believe that they would be very clear and simply stated, and excellent. Though many of the basics are, well, basic, you also manage to get stuff in each lesson that I don't know.
4. Have you learned something new, if so what was it?
Grr, should have read this question before answering the last. :) Learned something new with the stories of the Hippocampi, and their history. Also, learned things in this lesson about you and myself (i.e. not crazy, very similar beliefs, need to hang out and work together). I've learned some of what the skull of a wooly mammoth looks like. I've learned, oh good grief, lots that I can't put my finger on right now.
5. What do you think of this lesson and the previous four?
I really like this class. It may be my favorite of them, as I'm very close to animals and enjoy helping lower the boundaries further between my world and them.
 
1. Have you heard of the terms mentioned above before, which ones?
I have heard most of the terms before, such as astral travel, dreams, meditation, grounding, totems, familiars and spirit guides, though I wasn't aware of the differences between those last three. I had also read about the three theories you presented, but seeing them in your synopsis was very useful and helped me structure what I knew, However, this was the first lesson in which I had previous knowledge and experiences, your other lessons were all new to me.
2. Do you believe in anything like or similar to what I have stated above, or do you think I知 down right crazy?
If you're crazy, can I borrow your strait jacket? ;-) Seriously, there was a time I thought I was going crazy and making it all up.
3. Did you understand everything I have written in my lessons? I知 hoping so as I have received no questions regarding any confusion.
Don't worry about any confusion. It is my teaching experience at HH and in the Muggle world that students usually know much more than they admit openly.
4. Have you learned something new, if so what was it?
I learned the difference between a totem and a spiritual guide, and what a Wyvern is. The most important thing I learned was how mystic creatures came to exist on the astral plane. When I first learned that unicorns and dragons were real on the astral plane, I had a hard time accepting that, and even when I first met "my" dragon I wasn't sure if I was making it all up. Hearing that it was indeed human imagination that brought these creatures to life is soothing the skeptic in me, who sometimes still complains.
5. What do you think of this lesson and the previous four?
I find your lessons very clear and I love the style of your writing. Your texts bring the creatures to life in the mind, they are beautifully written, at times almost poetic, without sounding what my professors would call "unscientific". You have a gift for making information easily accessible without simplifying it. My favourite lesson were the lake creatures.
 
1. Have you heard of the terms mentioned above before, which ones?
I have heard of astral travel, astral plane, d駛 vu, familiars, totems, and spirit guides.
2. Do you believe in anything like or similar to what I have stated above, or do you think I知 down right crazy?
Crazy is relative; define normal first. I have astral-traveled most of my life and experienced d駛 vu multiple times. I just never knew the proper names for these things.
3. Did you understand everything I have written in my lessons? I知 hoping so as I have received no questions regarding any confusion.
I understood everything in the lessons, but will need to review everything again to make sure the information stays with me.
4. Have you learned something new, if so what was it?
I learned new information on the hippocampus.
5. What do you think of this lesson and the previous four?
The lessons are easily read and well-researched.
 
1. Have you heard of the terns mentioned above before? Which one's? A: I have heard of a few. Such as the Physical plain, The Astral plane, Astral travel, Totem guides, and Animal spirits.
2. Do you believe in anything like or similar to what I have stated above? Or, do you think i'm down right crazy? A: Of course, I think you're crazy, Professor Wolfie! lol! Crazy like a fox, though. In all seriousness, I believe there is great merit in the things you have discussed in this lesson. And, I DO believe in things like astral travel, animal spirit guides, the physical plain, etc. To me, there is more to this life, our life, than just the one physical plain we live in.
3. Did you understand everything I have written in my lessons. I'm hoping so, as I have received no questions regarding any confusion. A: To be completely honest, I did not understand all of everything listed the first time I read it. But, not because it was not explained perfectly or confusing. Or, that it's above comprehension. Your lesson/s are very well informed, imaginative, precise, and you are very good at breaking things down to help us all understand what we are to learn. It's just that, for me, it just takes a some re-reading to soak everything in. That's why I re-read all my school lessons a bevy of times, so as to really, properly grasp, and completely take in what i'm reading. Therefore, it's (not) the lesson that's hard to understand, it's what I take in, that takes time for me to completely understand. If that makes any sense.
4. Have you learned something new, if so, what was it? A: Yes I have learned something news. If I may be honest, again, I have enjoyed all the lessons you have taught, thus far. But, lesson 5, by far, is my favorite. It's open, very informative, and takes the Care Of Magical Creatures to a whoe new level. But, getting back to the question, I never knew about the Serpent, and Bone thoery before. Especially the Serpent theory. About a person who sees a real living beat, describes it to another, giving it a name, and birth to dragon.etc. I never knew that! I thought that was pretty cool.
5. What do you think of this lesson, and the previous 4? A: Actually, I commented on just this, in question 4. Again, I say, "All your lessons have been very informative, precise, and completely enjoyable." But, this lesson, if my favorite. This lesson's brought your teaching to a whole new level of information. It was really cool of you to open up, and share, as you did, about your belief's, while being open to others, and their beliefs. Espeically, where animal study/care is concered. I enjoy the fact that you make is fun for the student to learn new thing, while not overwhelming the student by the information given. I hope you really see htis a "true" compliment to your teaching, because that's just what I meant it as. I'm not polishing your apple, here, i'm just doing what you're doing. Stating a fact.
 
1. Have you heard of the terms mentioned in the lesson? Which ones? Actually, I've heard of all the terms you used. I'm a practicing pagan, so I've come across these subjects in my research.
2. Do you believe in anything like or similar to what I have stated above? I definitely believe in the different planes of existence and in reincarnation.
3. Did you understand everything I have written in my lesson? Yes, definitely. You explained everything very well.
4. Have you learned something new, if so what was it? I haven't given much thought to shape shifting, so your experiences with that were interesting.
5. What do you think of this lesson and the previous four? I'm really enjoying them. I love studying mythology, so many of the creatures you've written about are familiar to me, but I've learned something new in every lesson.

were approproate? Where Care of Magical Ceatures 2 classes are
concered, i'd say yes.
 7. Do you think the grades you got relflect your performance in that
class? Yes, absolutely do. I fell, both, Care of Magical Creatures 2,
... are concered, I got the appropriate grades.
 8. Do you have any comments, or suggentions?
Where Care of magical Creatures 2 is concered, Professor Wolfie is
funny, imaginative, helpful, and quite fair. ...I really enjoyed
taking her class. Very informative lessons, and quite challenging.
Just the same, I wish her lessons were not quite so long to read. Though, she did not do it often, the many, many questions within one question was a bit annoying. I'd
rather there be only one question given. Without there being stray
questions behind it. Takes longer to answers, and it to time consuming.
Although, I loved, loved loved the material Professor Wolf taught on.

these courses are so bloody brillant, and challenge the mind, body,
sould, and spriit.

The EC questions were a bit of detective work sometimes and lots of fun.

Charms and Spells
Teacher: Professor Charlie, Slytherin
Teacher's comments:
Spellwork: well, the class is called Charms and Spells, so: yes. Real spells, not Harry Potter magick.
Supplies needed: you can usually do these spells with supplies found in any household
Evaluations submitted: 2
Average vote: 9


Student comments:

1. How many classes did you take at the beginning of term? I took 4
classes at the beginning of school term. 
2. How many classes did you still have at the end of term? I am still in
all 4 classes.
3. What classes are you answering this questionaire for? I am answering
for Professor Charlie's Charms and Spells 1 class ..
 4. Which grade would you give this course on a scale of 1 thru 10? 1
being good and 10 being bad. For the Charms and Spells 1 course, I will
give it a defiate 9. ...
 5. On a scale of one thru 10, how difficult was this course? 1 being
easy and 10 bering very difficult. Charms and Spells 1 class, I would
give a definate 10. Very, very diffcult, for me. ...
 6. Comparing the assignments to lessons, do you think the assignments
were approproate?  i'd say yes.
 7. Do you think the grades you got relflect your performance in that
class? Yes, absolutely do. I got the appropriate grades.
 8. Do you have any comments, or suggentions? Yes, I do. Concerning
Charms and Spells One class, Professor Charlie was always fair, patient,
kind, and always there is I needed a little extra help. She's a
brillant, and talented mind. I really, really enjoy her class. I'm very
happy I did not drop it. The only reason I would have dropped it, was
because of time issues. Just the same, I felt the class, itself, was a
little to difficult for me, at times. Plus, there were to many multiple
quetions within one a question. That's takes so much time to answer, and
it can be a bit frustrating. Plus, to time consuming.
 Also, I feel the reading material was a bit to long, and quite technical
to read. Although, the information was very informative, and very
challenging. Also, I wish we able to do more on the spell, itself,
instead of just learning the history of the spell. Don't get me wrong, I
want to know about the history of a spell, but I wish we were given more
spells to, actually do. Espeically, more spells centerd around the Harry
Potter theme. Not just the Harry Potter spells, of course. But, just a
couple ever now and again...
 9. Would you reccomend this course to other students? Absoltely! Both
these courses are so bloody brillant, and challenge the mind, body,

InterFaith Studies

5. On a scale from 1-10, how difficult was the course? (1=very easy,

6. Comparing the assignments to the lessons, do you think the
assignments were appropriate?

- no, too easy
- no, too difficult
7. Do you think the grades you got reflect your performance in that
class?
x yes
- no, I got better grades than I deserved
- no, I deserved better grades than I got
8. Do you have any comments or suggestions?
I really like the split professorship.  Both have excellent information and styles that compliment each other and add to the learning.  Both have personal likes and dislikes that find their way into the classes and I do enjoy it. 
There was some talk about the lessons being too difficult, but I don't believe that to be the case.  There was perhaps a bit more independant research and analysis than in my other classes, but I personally enjoy that. 
9. Would you recommend the course to other students?
yes, I would.  There's a bunch of reading, but well worth it.  I find myself quoting stories back to friends in other settings and teaching the lessons forward in shorthand versions after I accidentally use one as an analogy.

 

Only one person turned in an evaluation for IFS. This is why we're giving the results of a poll we did about half way through the class. As a result of the poll, we tried to reduce the difficulty of assignments and cut down on the length of the material a bit.

Potions
Teacher: Professor Marlene, Gryffindor
Teacher's comments: 
Whereas, Potions 1 is kind of a mismash of magickal oils, cosmetics,
and cooking, I'm going to focus strictly on medicinal herbs for 2. Not
everyone is gonig to be interested in what I did for Potions 1, and I
don't want to force someone to take classes in something they aren't
interested in just to get to what they are interested in. Potions 2
would be a required prerequisite for Potions 3 though.
Spellwork: no
Supplies needed:
Most of the lessons will require ingredients, quite a few of them are probably already in your house (baking soda, vinager, oatmeal, honey, etc). Your grade will not be affected if you can't afford to buy the more unusual ingredients (beeswax, almond oil, essential oils, etc).

Student comments:

1. How many classes did you take at the beginning of term? I took four
classes at the beginning of this term.
 2. How many classes did you still have at the end of term? I still have
all four classes
 3. Which classes are you answering this questionaire for? I am
evaluating my Potions One class, which is taught by Professor Marlene.
 4. Which grade would you give this course on a scale from 1 thru 10? For Potions
One class, i'd give it a 9.
5. On a scale from 1 thru 10, how difficult was this course? On a scale
of 1 thru 10, i'd give Potions One class a definate 9.
 6. Comparing the assignments to lessons, do you think the assignments
were appropriate?
yes, it was just right.
 7. Do you think the grades you got reflect your performance in that
class?
I feel I deserved the grades I got. Very fair with both these classes, concerning
grades.
 8. Do you have any comments, or suggestions? Concerning Potions class, I
felt challenged, and learned quite a fair bit. Professor Marlene is
curtious, very kind, fair, and always helpful. My one, and only problem
were Potions One is concered, is that some times the reading material is
to much. And, it takes a great amount of time to search for the answers.
If we are are given a link, in which to read material on a website, I
wish the material was not so long. Makes it a little to time consumming,
and harder to find the answers.
 9. Would you recommend this course to other students? I would definately
recommend Potions One class to my fellow student.

8. Do you have any comments or suggestions?
maybe one lesson too many on cooking, but great fun and lots of useful potions, all relatively easy and inexpensive to make. Lessons on oils and bathing were my personal favorites. I only had one year of chemistry in high school, never seemed to understand it much, so I enjoyed this nice addition to my HH timetable. Other than at Hogwarts, Potions at HH might become an all-time favorite. Hope to hear more on aroma therapy and the magical aspects of substances in Potions II next term.
