PostSubject: Year 5, Lesson 3   10/24/2012, 5:49 pm

Ali was sitting at her desk in the front of the room. On the board was the day’s lesson. Once students would come in she will go more in-depth—if they have questions that is.


The wand chooses the wizard; so clearly a wizard's wand has some sort of magical affinity with the personality of its owner. Currently in magical law only wizards can carry and use wands.

There has been much speculation about broken during wands. Some have their wands snapped as a way to strip them of their magical identity and not allowing them to acquire a new one. But when accidentally broken the wands magic can backfire on to the user, but why does it do this. Several answers have been suggested for this, among them being that when it is your own wand, there is still a chance for the wand to work, albeit the high possibility that the spells will be severely weakened. However if it is a borrowed wand, there is no true allegiance which could also be an explanation as to why some spells might back fire on a user of a broken wand.

Wands are a focus, or lens, of a wizard’s power. However that is not entirely the case. People can do magic without wands. For example, wandless magic, animagus, and wands are not [always] necessary for potion-making, Divination, Herbology, and Astronomy. For the most part however, wands are the main way to exert our magic.

What seems to make the subject of wands the most fascinating is that wands are a sort of wizardly Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. This indicator speaks the most to the wand owner him/herself, rather than to everybody else who can look up about you. Wands both reveal and conceal the most essential things about a wizard; and no matter how many times we discuss it we never completely settle whether wands are a clue to a wizard's destiny, personality, character, potential, or all of the above.

HW: write a [paragraph] summary of this lesson using your own words.
