Opinion: 10 points

Occlumency is designed to prevent an outside mind from being able to read what is happening within your mind, but there is actually a fragment of Voldemort's soul within Harry. Do you think, because of that soul, a person would be more or less successful in repelling a magical attack? There is no right or wrong answer, I am interested in hearing your opinion. 100 words or more.


Free For All: 15 points

This option gives you free rein over what you will cover. You can write a story, research something else, draw or graphic something, anything your heart desires that has to do with subjects that we covered in the lessons. Be creative!




Bonus: 5 points

This part is not mandatory to get the quill, but I will still appreciate your comments. In at least 50 words, write any comments, critiques or thoughts about your participation in the class. What were your expectations, did you like the assignments and so forth.

You can get 5 points as a bonus (to the 60 from the exam), so you can get the coveted 300 points from the class. If you decide to do this option, know that I can only award up to 300 points. For example, if you have 297 points, I can only award 3, not all 5.
