Cool Divination Classroom

As you enter the Classroom you notice shelves filled with items like frilly teapots and matching cups and saucers, as well as glass balls of various sizes and other strange objects like stones and cystals of different shapes, colors and sizes. The tables are large and round, with comfortable poofy chairs surrounding them.

Professor Kotkin opened the hatch that led to the tower where Divination class would begin. She magiced a ladder and waited for the students to climb up and enter her first class. "This is going to be interesting! The last time I was in a classroom at Hogwarts, I was a student."

Jen climbed up the ladder and entered the classroom. She took in her surroundings as she made her way to one of the round tables. She sat down in one of the chairs and took out her supplies. Smiling at the professor she said, "Hello Professor. How are you today?"

Professor Kotkin smiled at Jen, her first student to enter the classroom. "Oh, wonderful Jen, actually I'm really excited to meet all of my new students today. And because you are my very first student, I'm sure they won't mind if I award 5 points to Gryffindor in your name!" she said smiling.

She slipped inside the Divination Classroom quietly and gave a polite nod to the Professor. Alex moved quickly between the rows of seats and sat down all the way at the back, as usual. Placing her bag underneath her chair, she scanned the room, looking for some Slytherins. Nadia, in particular. Noticing that she was not there yet, she shrugged and decided to save a seat for her, just in case.

Turning her gaze on the Professor and her eyes narrowed only slightly, she said to the Professor, "I'm rather curious as to what we are learning today." She stared at the Professor intently, awaiting for an answer. Most of her classes so far were practically going over guidelines and rules. Alex just wanted to start actual classes already, maybe they could actually learn something today.

Nadia walked inside the classroom, looking a bit tired. Scratch that. If she was yawning was because this time she wouldn't get told of for not getting her 8 hours due sleep, different from last year. She could freely yawn and maybe too freely she did.

Moving to the centre of the classroom, she sat down at the table that looked the most comfortable and started taking her supplies. Seeing the professor pass by, she nodded at her direction and said, "Good afternoon, professor."

:: Ganymede walked in smiling. "I can't wait to study this further!" She said very excitedly as she sat down next to Nadia. "I did a whole bunch of practice over the holidays." She noticed how tired Nadia looked a bit tired. "Nadia, I bet Hebe would give you some coffee if you asked her." She suggested. "It helps to get throught the day. She's a real talen at conjuring things." Ganymede still had a huge smile on her face. "I love this subject." She added tearing out her things from her bag. ::

Lee made his way to the other classroom that took place in a tower. He wasn't at all happy with the procedure of attending Divination classes since he learned nothing the term before and Professor Riddle was the teacher in before terms, Lee's favourite Professor.

He took his place at the back of the class and got out the necessary books and writing materials, he tucked his wand behind his ear just in case it might of been of some use in the divinatiory arts.

Professor Kotkin greeted her new students smiling, "Welcome Alex, Nadia, Ganymede and Lee. You know Ganymede, I like coffee too! It's so much better than tea. But then again, I find it is easier to read the tea leaves over the coffee grinds. But when I can't get coffee, I always have Chocolate Frogs on hand as an instant pick-me-up. Would you like one Nadia?"

Nadia waved her hand to politely refuse Ganymede's offer, then at the professor's offer, waved it again at the time she said with a smile and a blush, "No, professor, you don't have to, but thanks." She shucked slighly. Maybe she was looking worse than she thought she did.

At the time a bad idea because she was sleepy but, she preferred tea anyways ( )

Jen smiled widely. "Thanks Professor!" she exclaimed. She hadn't been expecting to earn many points this year so this came as a welcome surprise. She settled back in her chair and waited for the lesson to begin.

Professor Kotkin went to the front of class to begin the lesson. "To start off my class, I would like to find out what you have already learned about Divination as well as what you would like to learn during this term. Who would like to start off by giving us the definition of 'Divination'?"

Lee raised his hand "Divination is a unique art in the wizardring and muggle community who attempt to look into the future using many different techniques such as crystal balls, tea leavess, palmistry" he said smiling.

Nadia rasied her hand, "Divination is the magical art and practice of discovering the unknown, the science of finding out hidden information about the past, present or future through the use of psychic talents.

"The name comes from one important conception, that is, that Divination is the art of connecting with the divine, or to see a situation from a 'divine' view. In fact, the word divination is based on a Latin word that means "the faculty of foreseeing.” The word comes from the Latin word for "divine power," or "of the gods." This indicates that the true meaning of the word divination is "to make divine."

"Divination is most often practiced as a means of foretelling the future, and sometimes the past. It is one of the primary practices used by witches, wizards, medicine men, sorcerers, and shamans. These are called with the name of diviners, who often belonged to special classes of priests and priestesses in past and present civilizations, and are specially trained in the practice and interpretation of their divinatory skills. Divination is practiced with the intention of helping us in make better choices."

Karen raises her hand, eager to answer and says, "Divination is the practice of ascertaining information from supernatural sources. If a distinction is to be made with fortune-telling, divination has a formal or ritual and often social character, usually in a religious context; while fortune-telling is a more everyday practice for personal purposes." Karen smiles, hoping she's right, or at least a little close.

Sunny slips in quietly and sits in the back. Since everyone else had already answered the question, she figured she would just try and answer the next one.

Laura enters the class room and pulls out her materials quietly. She listens while everyone answers, hoping she will be able to get the the next question.

"Thank you for your help. That will be 2 points each to Lee, Nadia and Karen for your answers! Now this is a simple definition with some samples you may already have some experience with." Professor Kotkin tapped the board with her wand revealing....

Divination

Divination is the art of foretelling the future and its events. In some cultures it is known as fortunetelling. Forms of divination include; astrology, tarot card reading, crystalmancy, palm reading, tea-leaf reading, numerology or arithmancy, I Ching, dowsing, tree divination, talismans, runes, amulets, and dream interpretation.


Now I would like each of you to name one of your favorite forms of divination and explain to us what it is and why it is your favorite."

(ooc: I would like each of you to try and give different forms, in other words, I don't want to see alot of repetition. Make sure to write a couple of sentences as well if you want to earn your house points. No chatting, and I will continue this class tomorrow.)

Iphigeneia raised her hand. "My favorite form of divination is palmistry. This involves predicting the future/future possibilities using the lines and patterns, such as cross-hatches, swirls, loops, islands, etc. that are on the hand. Palmistry is my favorite kind of divination since the medium of prediction is intrinsic to the person whose fate is being predicted...unlike, for example, in tea reading, where everything is so variable and uncertain..."

:: Ganymede smiled, she had alot to say about Divination. She sat up straight and said with a very seriosu tone, "I think some of my more perferred forms would be Maculomancy. Birthmarks and the such are very important in a persons life... and moles too. Another one I enjoy is.. Metopancy. The forehead is so much better than a palm." She added with a small smile. "I hope to work on casting bones better. Sortilege Systems are alright I guess. Runes are easy.. but bones. They are a bit different." She finished and waited. ::

She said weakly.
