Third Years, Lesson One

"Good morning, everyone," Gabrielle greeted, watching as the students took their seats. "Welcome to third year History of Magic. For those of you who do not know me, like if you've transferred in or have amnesia or a terrible case of face blindness, I'm Professor Gabrielle Moncrieffe, and I teach first through fourth year History. I am sure you know by now how you are expected to behave in a classroom. We'll all treat each other with respect and we'll all get along just fine." At least she didn't really have to go through the rules at this point. "I don't mind whether you want to use quills or pens, whichever you are most comfortable with."

"This year we will have more essays, of course, but we will have some field trips.
" She smiled at the students, hoping that would perk everyone up. "I hope you all have some muggle clothes on hand for travel. Let me know if you don't and we'll sort something out. I'll let you know well in advance before we travel so you can be prepared," she added, with a smile. While Gabrielle enjoyed books and studying history in the comfort of her room or the library, there was something special about going to historical locations, actually seeing the remnants of ancient civilizations and societies. Hopefully the students would enjoy them, too. "Educational field trips, in part at least so we can get away with it, but it'll be a nice change of scenery."

"I won't keep you too long today, as I'm sure you already have plenty of work to get to. Or plenty of gossip about your break and who danced with who at the Yule Ball to get to. I'm not judging."
She'd give them plenty of work in time, but with how busy third year was she certainly didn't want to overload them. "Just a reminder that if you're struggling, be it with history, with any subject, or with anything else, my door is open and I am more than happy to listen and try and offer a helping hand where I can. And if you want to engage in further history study, I am even happier to help you out there, too." People often had interesting niche interests in history that they wouldn't cover in the classes, and Gabrielle was keen to cultivate those interests if students were looking for a means to do so. "That's all. Have a good week! And make sure you come ready to write next lesson." With a slight smirk, Gabrielle waved off her students, straightening herself back up and tidying her desk as the students filed out.

Homework

RP the lesson. That's all!
 
It felt like ages since Teddy had taken History of Magic that he had almost forgotten about Professor Moncrieffe and her funny sense of humour. He smirked at her introduction, reminding himself to bring a pen and paper next time. He was especially looking forward to the upcoming field trip since he'd been left behind for the last one through no fault of his own (well, maybe a little his fault) and felt he'd missed out. Overall, it was a pleasant and easy lesson, and Teddy appreciated not being thrown straight into a hefty lecture for their first lesson back.
 
Callie walked into the history of magic classroom and took her usual spot in the room. Her gaze moved to the professor at the front of the room as the woman got start. Callie was of course familiar with the woman and had a warm smile sitting on her expression as the woman got started. Beginning by introducing herself and then what they would actually be covering in this semester. She was a little disappointed by the fact they’d have lots of essays, she knew it was par for the course as they got older, but she wasn’t the best at essays. The girl was pleased that the lesson was short and she was then able to pack up her things and left the room.
 
Enoch walked into the history of magic classroom and took his usual spot in the room. He glanced at the professor and rolled his eyes somewhat tiredly at what she said. He knew that there was a new student in their year group, but surely there was an easier way of introducing them to the professors that theyw ould have that everyone else already knew. The teen took out his books and took his quill but didn’t move to write anything down, the professor wasn’t saying anything of real value and he was able to pack up and head off pretty quickly, not lingering in the room to ‘have conversations’ with the others in his year group.. He had better things to do.
 
Veronica knew she would enjoy History of Magic all that much because it would involve essays and lectures, but once she had taken her seat and began listening to Professor Moncrieffe it became clear that the semester would also include field trips, that did interest Veronica, even if they were educational ones she would enjoy getting out of the castle and seeing new things. She made a couple of notes during the lesson but it was mostly just a welcome back and summary of what they would be learning about in the upcoming semester. Once the lesson was over Veronica grabbed her bag and made her way out of the classroom.
