Career Paths (UNDER CONSTRUCTION!!!  These are not finalized requirements!)

Time to choose your profession!

You can earn your position earn by completing the course work for your career.  You will be working several terms to "apply" for your position.  You wouldn't have to announce your profession path until they complete all requirements.  When you wish to apply for a position, then you will need to provide links to your completed requirements.  

After completing a profession, you can go for another profession path, but you will start anew with job requirements...mean ing once you announce a completed profession, then your class/course slate is wiped clean.

For House Points & Year tracking I was thinking we could label them as such.  B for Bachelor's and then year 1-7 so 7th Years would be B1 in the Spring...after that we could move to M for Master, D for Doctorate, MO Merlin Order...etc.

If a student pass 7th Year wants to propose a profession we don't have listed, they may present a course of study that the headmistresses will review for approval. (Once a new profession path is approved, it will be added to the list)

4173  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / ~*Ordinary Wizarding Levels*~ on: February 26, 2014 09:17:52 AM
NOTE: Once you propose, please go forth on your Advanced Studies projects.  Your Examiners will PM if they have any inquiries.

~Everything O.W.L.s and N.E.W.T.s~
---Ordinary Wizarding Levels, OWLs, and Nastily Exhausting Wizarding Tests, NEWTs, are advanced crafting projects.  OWLs and NEWTs are supposed to be more complex and challenging projects.
---OWLs and NEWTs are more time-consuming than HPC classes and challenges.  There is no hard and fast rule on how many hours a project should take, because speed and difficulty levels are too subjective.  What we are really looking for is a project that will be a personal challenge to you.
---OWLs should take 3-4 weeks to complete.
---NEWTs should take more than a month to complete. (Please see post below for more on NEWTs.)
---Projects that do not take the allotted time of crafting will not be counted as complete; keep that in mind when you post your completed OWLs and NEWTs.  If you finish your OWL or NEWT earlier than expected, then craft an additional item(s) that correspond with your subject.  Add notes on how you finished earlier than expected and details about your additional crafting in your Completed Project post.
---You must propose your OWL or NEWT before starting so that we may be your cheerleaders and help encourage you during this more challenging craft adventure.
---You may only do 1 OWL & 1 NEWT at one time.  (Dont want you to be stuck with a ton of OWL & NEWT WIPs!)
---You may propose an OWL or NEWT any time during the semester.
---OWLs and NEWTs can carry over to the next semester.
---If you decide to abandon an OWL or NEWT project, notify your OWL Examiners, and they will erase that log from their records.  Once you have submitted to have an OWL or NEWT erased, you can propose a new one.


~*HOW TO COMPLETE AN OWL*~
1. Select which OWL you would like to complete.  You may only do one OWL at a time so select carefully.
2. Propose what you plan on doing for your OWL project.  You may do this by PM to your OWL Examiners or by posting in the HPC thread.  When making an OWL Proposal, please use the header below, and make sure you give details such as methods using, materials using, plan of action, timeline.  These details will help us cheer you on and inspire future OWLs.
3. Begin work on your OWL project.  Feel free to add progress pics in the HPC thread.
4. Once your project is complete, post a picture of your project in the HPC; make sure to use the OWL Header provided below.  Once you post a completed OWL, your OWL Examiner will notify the Headmistress, and you will earn your OWL Badge for that subject.
GOOD LUCK!!

~*House Pride & House Unity*~
You can turn in as many House Pride or House Unity projects as you wish.  These are projects inspired by one of the Hogwarts Houses.  House Pride would be projects representing your house, and House Unity would be projects representing the other houses or a combination of houses.  They can be inspired by house colors, mascots, founders, heads, past members, house ghosts, etc.  Note you will get House Points on only 1 House Pride and 1 House Unity project per semester.


~*Spring Classes*~
---Alchemy: With regards to my teacher training placement we will continue to study alchemical symbols during the Spring semester. This time we will look into the PHOENIX. This animal alchemy symbol is the archetypal bird. It rises, reborn, out of its own ashes, representing the alchemical process of death and rebirth. The phoenix is a highly used emblem in alchemy, representing the purifying and transforming fire, the chemical element sulfur and the color red. For your assignment, craft anything that shows the properties of sulphur, something that depicts the "rebirth" of the Phoenix or something that is red and gold (colors of the Phoenix).

---Apparition: Remember the apparition motto; Destination, Destination Destination. Focus on a destination that you would love to travel to, but haven't (yet), and use that as inspiration for your craft. Your destination can be a real trip that you have planned, or just somewhere you wish to visit one day - and who's to say how realistic those wishes should be? Maybe if you focus hard enough, you'll get there! 

---Arithmancy: The number 8 represents balance.  According to the pythagoreans the number 8 is the symbol of love, friendship and thinking. The chemical symbol for oxygen is 8. Create something based on the number 8.

---Astronomy: This term we will be studying the Pleiades, a cluster of stars found near Taurus the bull. According to Greek mythology, the Pleiades were companions Artemis the virgin goddess of the hunt. According to some myths they were placed in the sky as stars by Zeus shortly after their father Atlas was condemned to carry the world and they became deeply saddened. Other versions of the tale state that they were turned into stars by Zeus to allow them to escape from Orion. Your job this term is to either take something negative (either negative emotions or objects that you are not particularly fond of) and turn it into something positive/beautiful or to make something with seven parts. You may also, if you so wish, do some research of your own and make something that relates to another myth about the Pleiades.  

---Care of Magical Creatures (CoMC): This semester we will be focusing on the Fwooper.  The Fwooper is a magical African bird with brightly-colored plumage.  Its vivid feathers usually include orange, pink, lime green, and yellow.   The Ministry of Magic has listed the Fwooper with a danger classification of XXX, which means that only competent wizards should attempt to handle this exotic magical creature.  The Fwooper has earned this rating because of its very distinctive song.  Listening to the Fwooper's song will drive the listener insane!  Each bird, therefore, must be sold with a Silencing Charm placed on it. This charm is then reinforced monthly.  A license is required to own one.  The Fwooper lays elaborately patterned eggs and their feathers are highly prized for use as quills.  As you can imagine a naturally lime-green quill would be an attention getter....(think Rita Skeeter!)   On a side note, a little History of Magic for you, Uric the Oddball once tried to convince the Wizards' Council that the Fwooper song was actually beneficial to a Wizard's health, and listened to it continuously for three months. His presentation did not go well, when he turned up wearing nothing but a toupee that, on closer examination, was revealed to be a dead badger.  Your assignment this semester will be to create something that is BOTH vividly colored AND patterned, using at least THREE colors or patterns.  Example: one pattern and two colors OR three patterns and no color. Be creative and remember that the Fwooper is dangerous if you don't take precautions!  Remember your Silencing Charms!

---Charms: The swish and flick movement is one of the first wrist actions we learn in Charms. However, no wand movements are in-effective unless used with the correct spell-word (either verbalized or not); thus all Charms require the use of two different skill sets simultaneously. For your homework, practice using two different skills at once by producing a project that requires mastery of at least 2 techniques or mediums.

---Defence Against the Dark Arts (DADA): Spring is all about celebrating new beginnings, and with the curse tradition of annual teacher changes for DADA, we have plenty of those! Craft something to welcome a new person in your life; this may be a new baby, colleague, new found friends, or anyone else who you are just getting to know.

---Divination: This term, all divination classes will be held outside as we study the art of Aeromancy. Aeromancy is the study of divination using things you see in the sky, particularly focusing on cloud shapes. For your homework, you must look into the sky and create something based on what you see.

---Flying: In order to better your flying aptitude this semester, you must study a creature that is able to fly on its own, magical or not. See how elegantly a pegasus take its flight, how sturdy is the hippogriff. Look at a bird's or a pixie's wings and create something that depict a flying creature or wings.

---Herbology: No plants can thrive unless they are given the right conditions to grow in, and all require different things.  Some need lots of water, whereas some must be watered sparingly - some love heat whereas others frolic in the frost. In the greenhouses we work in, we recreate these conditions as best we can. For your homework, you must create the conditions which YOU work best in by making something to use in future crafting; this could be a practical  item like a needle case, an item to increase your comfort while working such as a cushion, or a piece of inspirational art for your work-area. 

---History of Magic (HoM):  For thousands of years flowers have been used in many different kinds of spells and magical endeavors.  Craft something inspired by the historical, magic uses of popular flowers.  For example, did you know the daffodil is associated with love and fertility? You could create a baby item, an item for a loved one, or something bright, cheery, and yellow like a daffodil.  Or take influence from a Narcissus flower: named for a Greek figure, the Narcissus helps promote polarity and harmony. Its calming vibrations bring about tranquility and inner peace so you could create something that brings a sense of calm to your household or garden.

---Muggle Studies (MS): Isnt it amazing how Muggles survive and live without magic? This semester well be studying the annual Muggle tradition of Springtime Cleaning! Muggles dont have spells and charms to whip their houses into shape. Sometimes they have to spend HOURS getting household things done. This semesters assignment is not quite a crafty lesson, but its still an important one. To learn some respect for how hard Muggles really work, your assignment will be to take an area of your house (or yard!) and give it a good deep cleanwithout any magic. To receive full credit for this class you must take a before and after picture so we can see just how much work you did. Happy Cleaning! 

---Potions:  Polyjuice Potion allows a human drinker to temporarily assume the form of another person.  This is a very complicated potion that takes one month to brew completely and is brewed in two separate stages.  It also contains many uncommon ingredients, such as lacewing flies, fluxed, powdered horn of bison and boomslang skin.  This semester you will need to create something to demonstrate your knowledge of the Polyjucie Potion.  This can include a complicated project or something that uses luxury or difficult to source materials.  Or you may choose to focus on the effects of the completed potion, such as something that transforms into another object or something that looks like one thing but is actually something different.

---Study of Ancient Runes (SoAR): Regenerative power and light of spring, renewal, promise of new beginnings. The rune berkano, birch, is the rune of the Great Mother, the goddess worshipped as Nerthus by the early Germanic people. The Earth Goddess is the mother of manifestation and of birth and rebirth. She also rules over death, since the soul travels to her cauldron after death to await rebirth. Her symbol is the birch tree, which is a fundamental symbol of fertility. For your assignment, you must craft something inspired by the rune, Berkano.

---Transfiguration: The Avifors Spell is a transforming spell that can be used to change the target into a bird, flock of birds or flock of bats with a vivid flash of blue light. When used in offensive manner, a jet of blue light will shoot from the witch or wizards wand, erupting upon hitting the target and solidifying them into a flock of black bats. These bats can be controlled by the caster, although they may also fly away. Your assignment this semester is to practice the Avifors Spell. You must craft something that shows your mastery of this spell.

Just a quick announcement....  Deputy Headmistress Jennie is sick.  As are all of her students.  As we head into Tech for a huge musical.  Sad  New Bertie Bott's Bean will be delayed until Mistress Jennie is well again.  In the mean time, you can still craft the Tomato Bean if you wish. 

Ok, back to bed...
