Tests, flyers and letters from the College of Wizardryjoulukuu 1, 2014
I wrote about my experiences in the Harry Potter themed larp College of Wizardry. I mentioned having the students do a test to determine their natural learning ability. Here’s a few samples of finished test papers and the results. Also included a flyer for C.A.N.D.L.E. and a letter from the Ministry of Magic.
C.A.N.D.L.E. Committee for Advocating Natural Dark-Light Equality * Close down Azkaban, Nurmengard & Quasimodo Bay * Release children born to imprisoned witches! * Stop Auror misconduct! * Freedom of speech also in Dark matters! * Freedom to criticize Aurors and MoM! * End persecution of families of criminals! * Minister of Magic should be elected by voting! Czocha Chapter first meeting of the semester this Thursday at 21:30 in Prof. Bane’s classroom. Bring your allies! ALL DIFFERENT ALL EQUAL
The Ministry Mr Bane, This letter is to inform you of the date your son Vladimir Bane will be summoned to the Wizengamot – this is 15.12.14 We have received information about your valiant efforts to captures Prisoner Storm and hereby extend a formal invitation to what will be an open court trial. Your son will however not be present in person, a representative will be selected. Two witnesses have stepped forward to testify for your son. Three have stepped forward to testify against. Janus Breakbanter Wizengamot
I have taught Writing For Interaction at university level, and know first hand that a college teacher doesn’t need to have any pedagogical skills. Imagine my surprise when my mandatory Swedish class teacher at the University of Art and Design presented the class with a test of our learning abilities, and conducted her course accordingly. I decided that my Professor Bane would be not only possibly quite evil, but actually a pretty good teacher. So he presented the students with a similar learning style test, a bit more twisted and completely unscientific, but still, more than I ever did to any class that I actually taught. Here are the results.
The results surprised both me and my character. Magizoologists are Verbal learners. Fair enough. Unspeakables are Visual and Mental learners. Aurors are Visual and Kinetic (learn by doing) learners. But both Curse Breakers and even Healers are what I dubbed Dark learners. Meaning that they learn by committing crimes, inflicting pain, breaking the rules, and so on. Nevertheless, none of the Healers had any prior experience with casting Unforgivable Curses. (Unlike many other Senior students.)
