  1. Another wonderful day of class, of course, he used 'Wonderful' in a different meaning and not at all sarcastically. It had been during the semester where he focused on the Element of Fire, which had always been a blaze and blast for him. It had only been added on to the fact that he had been able to not only share that enthusiasm with his students but also to really see how they would handle something that always had the potential to backfire in the worse of ways. While it had been something that he should have concerned himself with like some kind of old biddy, he found that students had been able to manage and assist one another which meant that accidents and occurrences had actually been much less than projected last year. This year had bolstered the same chances or that had been what his hope was considering the various new faces and even some old ones that he'd most likely be dealing with. Derrick still chose to keep textbooks out of the classroom, leaving those as more study material to gain a firmer grasp on an academical level rather than a practical level. Class had been the area where everyone could practice the applications and be okay to make those mistakes, to mess up and cause the kind of hiccups that would occur and know that there would be others around to not only manage it but mitigate the potential damage that would occur otherwise. Due to the hotter weather outside he decided to hold the class on the inside with several wards traced around the room that would act as an air conditioning for the room. He had been sitting on the top of a desk and both hands pressed against the surface of it while he leaned in a casual form. As the first student crossed the threshold his lips parted to speak. "Hey there class and good morning! You know the drill, drop your bags and stuff on the hooks in the back and take only your wand and maybe a bottle of water or two. Oh, and your hats. We may actually need to go outside for this little demonstration of the day. Don't worry, good ole Professor Sparky has an idea to keep you all warm and the mean sun out of your face and from burning you to little cinders." He leaned forward with both of his arms not resting on the edge of his thighs and a smile that seemed to grow wider by the second. "Today, we'll be going through a few series of practical uses for fire. Depending on how far I really want to go with it will depend if we have to step outside in that scorch. But I don't actually see that happening. I guess you can consider this phase more of a kind of: 'Survival's Guide of Fire - Things you may end up needing to use it for.' Mostly the kind of things that most Wizard's may encounter if they still have that drive for journey, adventure, and exploration." His hand rose up as if to halt any potential protests even if no one would actually raise any form of objection or snarky response. "Now, I know what some of you may end up thinking! 'But, Sparky! I don't like to explore stuff! It sounds dirty or messy!' In which I say, 'You never know what life will throw at you. Always be prepared!'." It still had been the early stages of the School Year and he wasn't sure everyone held names of their classmates in their heads just yet. "Now, for the last time for this week, Let's go down the line and just say our name and. . . Hm. . . Ah, what made you snag Elemental Magic as a course! If it was just to 'Fill a slot'? Be honest, I won't get mad."
  2. The year had been rounding around the corner in completion faster than he had expected. In his own mind Derrick had just been teaching the beautiful and wonderous effects of fire just yesterday and yet that couldn't have been so. Because now it was the fourth term which meant he needed to touch up the element of Earth to send the students off on a full curriculum. Something that they could mark up in their resume of completion - it was pretty important knowledge to hold especially for those that chose to go into the Auror profession where being well-rounded through the use of Elements would come in handy. This much like certain elements required a certain environment that could withstand the potential upheavals that came with the element of Earth. As such the class was once again held outside out in an opened field not that far from the school and like usual he had everything prepared for each student that had been in his class. Rather there had been two aspects towards this particular exercise, one which involved a couple of strong medium sized rocks that had big red X's painted on the face of them. A clear sign that they were intended to be targets for something impactful but littered around each rock had been patches of scorched ground. Someone had gotten a bit too happy with a fire spell or several of them. Both of his hands delved into the pockets of his jacket as he turned around to face the students that may have started to arrive. "Hello, hello! Welcome to your first day of the Fourth Term with Elemental Magic - you all came a long way and I gotta say. . . I'm pretty proud! You've showed your talent and willingness to learn with little judgement and dear I say a. . . Unique care for your fellow man and occasional stuffed animal." He knew that Iris certainly wasn't happy with the Term one exercise choice that being stuffed animal for her to set a blaze. He did start to wonder how that tinder-fur had been. . . "Gather around and listen up because this is going to be when I put to practice your ability to truly manipulate an element to change its 'intention' so to speak." He had hoped they had been keeping up with their studies as well as the various styles of Elemental spells that had been documented thus far. "Earth - It is an element with many capabilities much like water. It is a life giver and a violent element when put to the test. Yet it offers something that the others to seem to really have which is defensive capabilities which can withstand much if the right amount of magic and thought is put into the spell. Today? We'll work on all three but the first two being the offensive capabilities and the nurturing aspects." Derrick made his way towards one of the medium rocks as his leg lifted up and he pressed the sole of his shoe just on top of the head of it. "These X's are your target, I'm not asking for exact precision really just to give you something to focus and hit - which is the rock. With another rock that is conjured out of your wand." He removed his own wand and traced it through the air slowly to show the class and spoke out a few words then aimed it towards a nearby rock as a medium sized ball started to form and rotate rapidly as it built up the size of a basketball and propelled forwards only to smash forcibly against the rock. "Controlling your focus to be strong and firm - withstanding. It is that force in your desire that will help you out in this particular element."
  3. The first day of his class had finally started and it was going to be an adventure most of these kids will never forget either in their mind or on their actual bodies, depended on how volatile things were going to get if he were being honest. Derrick had arranged the desks in a very peculiar way so that everyone had been in a circle and somewhat forced to awkwardly stare at one another versus the usual rows that other classes seemed to be fond about. The desks, however, were spread enough apart to make sure that people had enough room to still move and operate within their physical personal space and bubble, there was no need to violate that, yet. On the board there had been a very well made illustration of his name 'Professor Derrick Ackers' written within stenciled letters and then just under that 'Or Professor Sparky' which had Professor stenciled but 'Sparky' drawn in such a way that it looked as if it were on a white flame from the chalk. He chose to wore a more casual outfit rather than the typical instructor's robe, primarily because he just felt really awkward and out of place when people looked at him wearing it, as if he were some kind of Mister, puh-lease. As the students started to funnel into the classroom a carefree smile struck along his face. "Walk on in! Grab a syllabus by the door, prepare for some really neat fun! Please, Please - Hold the questions until after I have told you a bit about myself. Everything you'll most likely need to know? On that neat little paper! Anything beyond that we'll just have to see if I know!" Derrick leaned against his desk and waited until every student had started to sit down and settle in a bit - even giving them enough of a grace period to interact with one another before he'd continue on with what he needed to say. "Look at the board, as it says, I'm Professor Derrick Ackers. Some of you may have heard the legendary tales of 'Sparky of Spencer', guy who went around setting stuff on fire in his wonderful youth? Welp, that's me! As such, you can also appropriately call me, 'Professor Sparky'. As stated in the Syllabus this first session is just to get an idea of everyone so that we can all walk in an understanding. SO! What I'll need. .. " He was thinking in the moment now as the tips of his fingers dabbled at the edge of his chin. "Let's go with Names, Your favorite Element, and. . . What you enjoy most about that element. We'll keep it class centric!"
  4. Welcome to Elemental Magic Taught by Professor Derrick Ackers In this Class you will learn: About the various elements: Fire, Water, Air(We can totally toss Lightning here!), and Earth The various shapes each element can take for potential uses through magic - Not so hard! How these elements react to different objects - Active testing my kids, active testing. Dangers that come from messing around with elements carelessly, This is just so -I- don't get in trouble. . . I mean, your safety. The importance of willpower and intention, seriously, have to make sure you want a fire ball not a stream of fire. How these various elements can applied towards a career, you'd be pretty surprised there! Most importantly, you will learn that Element's are pretty fun! Like, really fun, trust me. What I expect of you as Students: Let's just get this one out of the way, we still have to respect one another. I don't mind deducting for that - With a smile. Come prepared, by that, I mean actually make sure you have your ready to get dirty clothes. It can get messy. Be open minded! This class is designed to put to test a lot of things that may not be considered 'Typical'. You -can- ask my Assistant questions! Please, don't ogle her, I'll get in trouble for it. Don't get all flustered if something bad happens, we'll handle it a step at a time! What will you be graded on?: Now, this class is designed to be as paper-less as possible. Primarily because that is just fodder for the flame, get it? As such there are no actual exams by writing or even a lot of book learning, the books help for you to get a better idea of where the Elements are their strongest and how they can be manipulated. But, in the end it's going to be on what you experience for yourselves, both in failures and successes. There will be a brief discussion and get to 'Know your classmates and Sparky(Me)' segment but after that session you'll be graded on how active you are in class, and how willing you are to test the different applications for the element we'll be studying. As for which Elements will be focused on we'll go by Terms as not to fuddle stuff up. Homework will be given but don't fret! It isn't something that you can't do, just go out and explore the area once a week. I'll cover this more in class. My teaching style -relies- on you all gaining experience and understanding, I am a guide and what you learn is based on how willing you are to follow that guides instructions. If you have questions, concerns, or just want to chat about how Fire can burn down a barn I am easily found around the area.
