Defence Against the Dark Arts (DADA) is a subject taught at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Students learn how to magically defend themselves against Dark Creatures, the Dark Arts, and other dark charms. Offensive magic is also taught in this class, such as how to duel, which requires the use of both offensive and defensive magic.
Defence Against the Dark Arts classes take place in Class 104 in the North Tower and Classroom 3C on the third-floor. In Classroom 3C, an iron chandelier hung from the ceiling, as well as a dragon’s skeleton. On one end of the classroom stands a projector that is activated by magic.
The subject is a core class at Hogwarts. The position of Defence Against the Dark Arts professor here was once rumored to be jinxed, as no teacher could hold the post for more than a year. It is said Lord Voldemort jinxed the position because Dumbledore did not give him the job when he applied for it. The fact that no teacher has lasted longer than a year meant that the subject has had numerous Professors.
The curriculum of the class varies greatly depending on what the professor at the time deems appropriate. Each teacher had their own priorities and way of teaching, and their own respective efficiency proportional to his or her beliefs and methods. Prof. Lupin was amazing, while prof. Umbridge was probably worst of the worst, followed closely by Death Eater Carrow, Professor Quirrell and wait, Gilderoy Lockhart…Half of the teachers were a mess, now I think about it…
Dear student, who is your favorite teacher? How would you rank them from the most powerful to the least? :) Don’t let your thoughts wander too far, however, bell has rung and we are settling in for an exciting DADA class!
