When the students enter, she is sitting atop her desk waiting for them. Her name and Defensive Theory Scenario are written on the chalkboard to her right. "Welcome back to Hogwarts, all of you. I'm Professor Déonté. To kick off the year, let's discuss a scenario: Someone's throwing nonverbal spells at you left and right. What do you do?"

"Throw up shields," she says, automatically. "Bit of a pointless question, professor. Don't you think?"

"Throw fists!" A thick, Russian accent echoes in the classroom, the blonde babe looking amused by her own words. "Nah. Not realistic. Throw shields up and then slam back."

"Everyone has their own take on things, Emmeline, and not everyone will go about things the same way. Those of you thinking of throwing up a shield--that's great, a good start, but take into consideration how you'll find out what sort of shield to cast. Let's keep going with the same question for now."

This question is rather intriguing. "There's also the choice of just deflecting the spells to the side." He says as he fiddles with his wand. He would much rather act out this scenario.

Teagan's brow furrows. She leans in, inclining her head as if she heard wrong. "I'm sorry, did you just ask what Defense Against the Dark Arts is, professor?" she asks, slowly. "The name - the name itself says it."

She raises an eyebrow. "Teagan, isn't it? I'll rephrase, but do keep in mind that if I were looking for such a superficial answer I wouldn't have asked the question. Why do we teach Defense Against the Dark Arts, what does the subject mean to each of you, and when might you need to use what you learn in this class?"

Ugh. This is what they'll be doing? And she thought this was her favourite subject. "Er, the Sphinx is said to ask this", Vendela answers, "but do riddles have that much to do with defense against the dark arts?"

He decided to let someone else answer, despite knowing that he knew it best. But he didn't want to be a teachers pet, or seem annoying. So he stayed quiet, just tapping his fingers on his desk and tapping his foot on the ground. Impatient as he waited for someone to answer such an easy question.

"Yes, I suppose you could, David. It might also be helpful if you need to make a quick escape, or to disorient someone." She turns to face a humanoid dummy a few feet away from her desk and raises her wand. "Watch closely. Obscuro." A black blindfold appears around the dummy's "eyes." She turns back to the class. "Each of you pick a dummy from the back of the room and try it yourself. There's no complicated movement to this one, so speak clearly and envision the result in your mind."

"Today we'll be learning a pair of charms that go together quite nicely: Stupefy and Rennervate. I'm sure you all know their effects, but use similar sounding words and their meanings and the etymology books I've laid out for you to create a thought process. Pretend this is the first time you've heard of the spells. Now, who wants to give their explanation first?"

Callum was having a little bit of a hard time trying to think of a way to explain it like he had just learned this. He knew these charms quite well, and he couldn't just 'dumb it down'. He was glad that Anna spoke up, it helped him with his own thinking process.

She nods along. "Good, we're getting some diverse answers now. For homework I'd like all of you to come up with a potential scenario you might find yourself in. Please include setting, time of day, variety and number of assailants, spells used, any other pertinent details. The student with the best one gets twenty points for their house and there might be candy in store if it's creative enough. You have the rest of class to work on them, please have them ready for class tomorrow."

"Good answers, all of you. Now I'd like you all to pick one of the dummies at the back of the room and try to disarm it nonverbally--using magic. If I see any of you doing it by hand you're getting detention."

She'd sigh and pull her wand out. Doing magic was hard enough...having to do it non-verbally was pretty much impossible. Still she'd focus trying to concentrate and flick her at the dummy trying to disarm it. A small shiver ran through the dummy...barely noticeable.

He'd smile and aim his wand at a dummy casually flicking it at the dummy and it's weapon would flip out of it's hand.
