Regarding veela
Sat Aug 4, 2018 02:10

The fact that veela were on the curriculum for this year was a point that had been made clear both to Cleo and to Tabitha. It was to be a theory lesson (Selina did not even what to try to imagine what a practical lesson on veela would involve. Hormonal teenagers lusting after each other were a bad enough lot without supernatural influence), which meant some reading should be assigned, a lecture given and some kind of task - answering some questions, or having a class debate, that kind of thing. The structure was easy enough, it was which of the many angles to take on the subject that was the real matter. It was Defence Against the Dark Arts, so there did need to be a component of ‘veela are dangerous and here are the reasons why,’ but beyond that… Well, that was up to Tabitha.

Selina had explained to the new Defence Professor that she would be checking over a few of her lesson plans during the term - the veela one, for obvious reasons, but also to support Tabitha as she got the hang of teaching. There had been a period of overlap with her predecessor, Daniel Nash, and so Selina was confident that Tabitha had had some support in devising her plans for at least the first half of this term, but she wanted to make sure that she was managing, both for the teacher’s own sake and for that of the students.

She had forewarned Tabitha that she would stop by during the first few days of term to talk about the veela lesson, and when she had passed Tabitha earlier that day, had told her that she would stop by after dinner. So it should not have come as a surprise when there was a knock on Tabitha’s door.

“Right. Let’s have a look then,” she smiled, taking a seat opposite the Defence teacher.

        “That seems like a good plan,” Selina nodded, pleased with the overall structure of the lesson plan, “So, during the discussion - students are free to comment on each other’s opinions, or critique... more

          Tabitha was relieved when Selina seemed to agree and like what the Defence professor had come up with. That was the first obstacle that she'd managed to get over. What seemed to be the next issue was ... more

            “Well… At least it’s something,” Selina nodded, when the Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher admitted that defence against this particular subject was particularly lacking. She searched for... more

              Tabitha leaned back in her chair with a sigh. There was a throbbing pain beginning to make itself known in her temples and she resisted the urge to groan. When Selina had told her about Cleo, Tabitha ... more

                “She has a tendency towards fire when upset,” Selina noted, as Tabitha mused on the likelihood of Cleo going into harpie mode. She was somewhat surprised by Tabitha’s suggestion that Cleo would never ... more

                  Tabitha couldn't help but wince at the mention of fire. The thought always reminded her of some incidents throughout her travels that had been a bit too hot and close for comfort and she didn't just... more
