Remus’s Teaching Methods

Can we plz talk about Remus’s teaching methods in PoA. Okay just listen:

First off, he showed up late to HIS OWN CLASS!

Secondly, he told them to put away there books and took a walk through the castle, to the STAFF ROOM.

Thirdly, when Peeves started to call him “Loony, Loony, Lupin” in front of his class, he SMILED. Then shoot gum up Peeves nose. And TAUGHT this spell to the class.

Fourthly, when Snape rudely insulted Neville, he made brought Neville up to the front of class, then proceeded to make a Snape/Boggart dress in drag.

Fithly, “ ‘Now then,’ said Professor Lupin, beckoning the class toward the end of the room, where there was nothing but an old wardrobe where the teachers kept their spare robes. As Professor Lupin went to stand next to it, the Wardrobe gave a sudden wobble, banging off the wall.

‘Nothing to worry about,’ said Professor Lupin calmly because a few people had jumped backward in alarm. ‘There’s a boggart in there.’”

- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, J.K. Rowling, Page: 133

Just think of the smirk he is fighting as he says that so casually. Oh yeah, just a monster in the wardrobe.

Sixthly, he casually keeps dangerous creatures in Hogwarts to teach with.

Seventhly, the final. It was an obstacle corse, “ Professor Lupin had compiled the most unusual exam any of them had taken; a sort of obstacle corse outside in the sun, where they had to wade across a deep paddling pool containing a gindylow, cross a series of potholes full of Red Caps, squish their way across a patch of marsh while ignoring misleading directions from a hinkypunk, then climb into an old trunk and battle with a new boggart.”

- Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, J.K. Rowling, Page: 318

Think about Lupins thought process; Exams, a test, no, fun, how about a game, sort of game, what is a game/test, obstacle corse, full of, dangerous creatures, yes that will work.

Remus teaching methods might be bizarre, but Remus is still may peoples favorite DADA teacher after many years. They did learn the most, that actually stuck in there brains.

Every loved him, but Malfoy and his “gang”. He was fun, quirky, and just plain cool. He was an amazing teacher in bad circumstances. The only DADA teacher that didn’t have some other agenda.

He truly was a great teacher and that is just another reason to love Remus Lupin.

[Harry’s phone rings. He puts it on Speaker]

Harry: Harry Potter. Hello.

Draco: Hi baby. It’s Draco.

[Ron, Hermione and Ginny all look up, alarmed.]

Harry: All right.

Harry: Yep. Okay.

Draco: Are you going to bring the toys again?

[Harry embarrased, hurriedly picks the phone up]

Harry: Erm, Yeah… okay… yeah… look forward to… doing it to you too. All right, bye.

[Harry puts the phone down. There is a stunned silence]

Ron: The Toys?

Harry: Shut up.

Ron: What are the toys? Is it Buckaroo? It’s not Boggle is it?

Harry: Shut up.

Ron: If it’s Kerplunk I’m coming round.

Harry: It was a private phone call, so…

Hermione: Well, don’t put it on speakerphone then Harry.

[Awkward silence]

Ron: Is it Hungry Hippos?

Harry: fuck off Ron!

Slytherin things:

It is not unheard of to, now and then, come across a Slytherin sitting, seemingly oblivious to the three or more Hufflepuffs using them as a pillow or post.  This is a combination of Hufflepuff and Slytherin house dynamics: a Slytherins tendency to get lost in their thoughts and Hufflepuffs being golden retrievers in human form.
