PostSubject: Muggle Studies Lesson 1 (Years 5-7)   Mon Sep 01, 2014 6:49 pm

Greg glanced around his classroom for the last time before students would come inside. He had set the tables up in grid fashion by using a bit of magic. There was no way he’d be pushing those things around with his leg. The chairs for the tables were the most uncomfortable things Greg has sat in since he was a child. Lucky he had a black leather swivel chair for his desk. Greg was currently sitting in this chair and leaned back as far as it could manage with his feet up on his teacher desk. He was enjoying his last minutes of solitude before the kids showed up. Greg took his earbuds out of his ears and tucked his iPod away. He had managed to get it to work on school grounds with a few complex charms. He waved his wand behind him to write on the blackboard:

Dr. Greg House
Muggle Studies Professor
Lesson 1
What are Muggles?

Greg wanted to get a stance on how much knowledge his students had about muggles before he’d jump in to other more hands on lessons. He tapped his cane on the floor. Any second now kids were going to rush in.

Thana arrived at her first Muggle Studies lesson at her new school, she walked  in and saw a new Professor. One that hadn't been teaching at Hogwarts, she nodded slightly to him and sat down. Noticing that the chairs had been purposely separated. Thana knew better than to ask.

Sitting down on the chair, she hardly noticed how uncofortable they were. Years of training with Shifué meant that she could get comfortable even if sue sat on a knife blade. Thana pulled out a book and got prepared for the lesson. Her adoptive brother was supposed to be here by now, she frowned. Hoping he hadn't partied again. Thana pulled out her books and waited. She was nervous about starting at her new school, she hadn't told many people. Namely one in particular.

Michelle did take the muggle studies this year even if she knew actually very much about muggles. Girl was born in muggle world amd lived there all her life. She also was muggleborn. But she still can take it. Maybe even learns something useful or new. Who knows?

She soon walked into the classroom. She greeted proffessor and fellow new housemate, who transfered from Hogwarts also she was fellow prefect there, with smile on her face. She did sit down too now. She looked at the board and smiled. For her if was quite easy topic actually. She knew very well who are muggles. She will have no problems qith todays lesson topic at all. Right now she needes to wait for others to show up.

Jareth woke up late, and with a slight hangover. He had partied away his last night of freedom, a stupid choice on his part. He had ringing in his ears when he made his way to his first lesson.

Walking in, he saw his adopted sister was already there. "Godammit how the hell did she get here so fast?" he thought to himself, sitting down next to her.  "Sup Professor?" he said to the man standing out the front. He seemed like a bundle of fun.

"Where the hell were you? You were supposed to meet me before breakfast"
Thana said quietly,

"Take a guess" Jareth replied, earning him a slap at the back of the head.

" Your supposed to be trying this year, you don't want to repeat again" Came the quiet reply.

"Smartass" he answered, the ringing still in his head. He quietly pulled out his books and looked at the board. "Oh, I KNOW ABOUT MUGGLES! "he yelled, before wincing. "The joys of a hangover" he thought.

Aragorn walked to the Muggle Studies classroom with confidence, his parents were muggles. Sadly. He walked in and nodded to the new professor, he would be an interesting one. A retired doctor Aragorn had found out.

Walking in he read the board then sat down, out of the corner of his eye he noticed a movement. A girl had whacked a boy Aragorn knew as Jareth up the back of the head. They obviously knew each other, by the way they spoke in hushed tones. Aragorn looked carefully at the girl, she was new.Probably a transfer student by the looks of it. He stared at her with an interest. She wasn't like the other girls who tried to be loud and get attention. It seemed this girl didn't want it, she didn't have makeup on to the point that other girls did. It was only light, she was organised as well. She seemed very dedicated. He stared at her, hoping not to get noticed.

Greg internally sighed as the older students filed in. He stared at the kid who yelled out about Muggles. "You must be Jareth your reputation precedes you." Greg said as he grabbed his cane and used it to stand up. He scanned the class that has showed up. "Before anymore morons yell about fairly obvious things like 'Dr. House uses a cane' I'd like to tell you my one ground rule. You have one warning per class and if you manage to receive a warning and not get it that you should cut the crap, You'll get a week of detention with me." Greg said and he was dead serious. He limped over to his blackboard and turned his back to the students.

"I know you're all dying to know why I use a cane." He said and turned around. "The limp is left over from a bad curse and yes hit hurts like hell. I'd recommend you all pay attention in your DADA class and this one of course." Greg said and stared at Jareth in particular. He went back to his desk to sit back down. "If anyone else walks in you can explain what I've said to them. Now you can talk amongst for a bit longer." Greg said. Greg knew he was already developing a grudge against Jareth.

Thana let a ghost of a smile touch her lips as Jareth was immediately told off, and picked up her book to slap him across the back of the head again when he gave a snide remark about the Professors leg.

" Show some bloody respect and if you think you can copy of me all year because you come to classes with a hangover, your wrong" She said moving away from him and re sitting. Jareth wasn't her problem, so she had no intention of helping him.   She sat back down and readjusted, once again ready for the lesson . She ignored her adoptive brother, purposely. He meant nothing to her academically, she only looked out for him because she had to live with him for most of the holidays.

At the mention of his reputation preceding him, Jareth just smiled even wider. " Really Sir? I knew I was famous because I an such a hottie and a partyboy, but I didn't think a .. person such as yourself would know of me" he replied,

Show some bloody respect and if you think you can copy of me all year because you come to classes with a hangover, your wrong"



Jareth got a harder hit by a book " ow" he said to his ' sister' that had moved away . " Come on Sis! Dont be like that! We are BOTH repeating!" He said to her. Seeing if she would react. Instead he simply got ignored , she was good at ignoring people when she wanted. Jareth would give her that much.

Aragorn watched the interaction slightly amused, obviously the girl didn't care too much for the boy. At the mention of being a "sister" he realised that she was obviously adopted into the family. Aragorn knew Jareth was a party boy, often he went out with him but the woman that accompanied them were trivial. Not what Aragorn was looking for.

Looking back at the Professor, Aragorn had a question. "Sir, what is it exactly you want us to tell you about muggles? What specifically they are, or what makes them different to us?" he enquired.

Diem was sadly running late and she didn't like being late. She was head girl now and she was late for a class that she enjoyed. She was practically sprinting to the class and when she arrived she saw that the class already begun and she was feeling so guilty right now. "I am so sorry Professor, it will not happen again. I swear" she said as she entered the class. She took a seat and was biting her lip waiting for her punishment.

Greg was not happy at the moment. He stared at Jareth. It wasn't a kind stare. It was more of a 'I do not approve of you at all' stare. He nodded at the late student as if trying to say 'its fine this time'. Greg took a breath. "Jareth Faowind If you don't shut the hell up I'll be seeing you for a whole month of detention and if  you even try to utter an other word I'll Owl your older brother." Greg threatened. Greg looked around at the rest of the students. "Now that thats sorted I think we'll begin." He said and grasped his cane to stand up. He pointed his wand at the board and the messaged changed.

What is the first thing you think of when you hear the word Muggle?

"I want you're dead honest answer. I don't care if its offensive. Just say it." He said and sat back down. "One at a time... Please." He said with his voice dripping with sarcasm on the word 'please'.

Jareth smiled even wider at the Professor as he tried to scare him. " Sure sir, lets date for a month.. See how it goes! Want me to bring the alcohol?, and tell my bro I said hi! " He smirked back, before giving his answer. " Muggles are party people "

Jareth wasn't paying attention to his " Sister" until she was right at his desk. She calmly walked between him and the desk, he smiled broadly for a minute before being forced to stand up in pain. " Thana.. Stop.." He said through gritted teeth.

Thana had hoped that the Professors threats would of been enough to fix Jareth. Apparently not so. He gave the rudest remark, and Thana was sick of it. Not even twenty minutes into her first class and she was  contemplating murdering her 'brother'

Quietly and calmly she got up from her desk, and walked over to Jareths. She walked between the desk and the chair he was lazily swinging back on. What she did next was not something anyone would of expected from her, she not so delicately put her hand on Jareths Solar Plexus and closed it. Making him shoot up in pain.

Thana... Stop came his reply through gritted teeth.

Thana only hardened her grip, she didn't care that he would be embarrassed in front of the whole class, she was not putting up with his smartass attitude all year. " Let me make something very clear Jareth. I dropped you like a leaf over the holidays and I can do it now. I have been with you for twenty minutes in one class and you have already got detention for a month" she started, watching satisfied as his face got redder and redder. " I am repeating this year because I saved your ass, but next time I am going to help whoever wants to kill you. Now sit the eff down , shut the hell up and if I hear one more smartass comment from your mouth I will personally throw you out of the window and collapse a wall on you. Do you understand?" She asked, her grip harder than iron on Jareths nether regions .

... Yes... came the tiny high pitched squeak from her ' brother' he had tears coming out if his eyes like a fountain. Satisfied, she let go of him and quietly returned to her desk like nothing had happened. Ignoring her crying brother holding himself on the floor in agony . For once she was glad she was female.

Michelle did see everything that what was going on this classsroom now but she staied still. Didn't really want be part of this kind of family drama right now. When teacher asked what is first thing that come in mind if you think about muggles. "For me it's my parents since they both are muggles," she said her answer to professsor now too.

Aragorn watched as the Wormwood girl got up and stopped her 'brother' he did feel sorry for the poor dude, laying on the floor crying. Obviously this girl was an interesting one, he would have to watch her further.

Returning his attention to the class at hand, he answered the first thing he thought of. " Pathetic, they know technology yet lack so much thanks to magic" Aragorn said. Not caring who he offended, both his parents were Muggles and in his opinion beneath him.

Greg sighed. Its only his first lesson with these kids and things are already getting out of hand. "Thana Semele you've got a warning now. Don't do that again." Greg said. Yes he might like that it shut up Jareth but its not appropriate. "And Jareth I'll talk to you after class." Greg said and rubbed his hand across his face. He listened to the students answers to his question. "Okay so we've got both sides of the spectrum. Do any of you have any concrete reasoning behind your opinions?" Greg asked to try and get a more in depth discussion. "Also I'd like some similarities and differences between Muggles and us. I assume we all know that we can do magic and the can't so try to be more creative." Greg asked them. Might as well throw more then one question out.

Thana looked down as she got her warning, she hated getting in trouble. It wasn't because she was a goody two shoes, but she had to do well in school. She couldn't afford any mistakes, and being in trouble was one if them. " Sorry Sir" she said quietly, before listening to the rest of the class. Thana watched as Jareth finally got back up and in his chair , knowing he would be in too much pain to come out with a sarcastic answer.

Aragorn listened as the girl, whom he now knew the name of got in trouble. Personally he didn't think she had done anything wrong, but it was the teachers choice. Upon being asked a few more questions Aragorn thought before answering. " I was born to a family that had so much technology, yet no time to do anything else. By supposedly getting smarter and smarter they make the selves dumber, giving the selves jobs that take hours to complete by hand and only minutes by wand." He answered, giving his thoughts .

After several minutes of hell, Jareth finally managed to get up again. Quietly and scaredly sitting at his desk, he didn't dare speak yet. He didn't trust his voice enough not to still be high pitched and squeaky, revealing the pain he was still in. Instead he sat quietly , breathing through the pain.

Apollo was once again late for a class that he shouldn't be late for but of course because of him waking up a little later then he should have, he was now late. This was DADA all over again and he wasn't interested in being late to another class again. Apollo walked into the classroom and felt entirely guilty but had to let it go because he needed to focus on this class. "I apologize for my lateness" Apollo apologized, he hadn't attended this class yet but he knew that he would have to eventually to get in his knowledge.

Greg saw another student come in the room. "Its fine this time." Greg said gestured for the boy to sit down. "Yes Muggles are very attached to their technology but technology is a fairly broad term. Can someone try to define it for me and maybe add a few examples?" Greg asked to the class and shuffled around in his pocket for his iPod. When Greg found it, he held it up for the class to see. "For example, this is a iPod. It was developed by the Muggles as a way to listen to music." Greg told them and put the iPod back in his pocket. "Most Muggle technology is fairly simple to figure out. The Muggles tend to make using these products easier to use by making them similar to other products like it." Greg said and pulled out his wand to write on the board.

iPod's vs MP3 players

"These two devices are very similar but have a few differences." Greg said and put his wand away. "Any questions so far?" Greg asked.

Diem knows a lot about Muggles, considering her father actually was one before he killed himself. It was still a tragedy for her. When the Professor asked about if they had any questions Diem raised her hand, it wasn't really for a question but to add more onto the differences. "If I remember correctly, aren't MP3's and IPod's different in size as well as the name?" Diem asked. "I remember that they come in all different sizes along with color and memory."

Greg listened to Diem. "Yes that's correct." Greg said. He looked at the rest of the class. "Class dismissed for everyone." Greg said and sat down at his desk again. He sighed. Greg wasn't expecting certain students to be so difficult. Well at least it was over for now.
