HistoryEdit

1991–1992 school yearEdit

While Quirinus Quirrell worked as Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, the room smelt strongly of garlic. His students believed that the smell was to ward off a vampire that he met in Romania and feared would be coming after him.[8]

1992–1993 school yearEdit

Lockhartclassroom

Gilderoy Lockhart's pictures in the classroom.

When Gilderoy Lockhart was the professor, during the 1992–1993 school year, he decorated the room with his own pictures. During the first lesson, he gave a quiz completely irrelevant to the subject and then released a group of boisterous Cornish Pixies for the class to practice. However, due to his ineptitude and the students' inexperience, Lockhart lost control of them, leading the classroom to be demolished, and Lockhart ultimately fled the room with the rest of the students while irresponsibly ordering Harry Potter, Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger to clear up his mess. After this one fiasco, Lockhart simply read aloud his supposedly great deeds from his textbooks, sometimes reenacting them and usually dragging Harry to play certain degrading roles. Due to this, the students did not learn anything about defence.

1993–1994 school yearEdit

Remus Lupin taught in the 1993–1994 school year. They studied various Dark Creatures. The first class was hands-on as they battled a Boggart. He also brought a Grindylow to class so that they could observe it. They covered Hinkypunks, Kappas, Red Caps, Vampires and Werewolves in the year. Their final exam was a practical one, an obstacle course with some of the creatures they had studied throughout the year.

1994–1995 school yearEdit

The 1994–1995 school year brought yet another teacher, Barty Crouch Jr. (impersonating Alastor Moody). Although they were only supposed to be learning counter-curses (per Ministry of Magic regulations), Moody covered the Unforgivable Curses, demonstrating with spiders. He put the Imperius Curse on each of them in turn until they could fight it off. Crouch also had a metal jar of worms, as well as a glass container full of bees.

1995–1996 school yearEdit

In the 1995–1996 school year, Harry and his fellow students were taught by Dolores Umbridge, who taught theory only with no practical training whatsoever. The book used was Defensive Magical Theory and it discourages anyone from ever using any form of offensive magic spells. The chapters of the book instead focus on negotiation and states that there is no good use for a jinx. Umbridge did not allow the students to discuss the material and certainly not to disagree with it. She also forbade any talking without raising hands, and always requested wands to be put away. As one of the methods of retaliation against her tyranny, the moment she enters the classroom she would be greeted by students with ill-coated symptoms of "Umbridge-itis", much to her chagrin.

1996–1997 school yearEdit

The 1996–1997 school year brought another teacher, Severus Snape. The class learned about counter-curses, the Patronus Charm, the Unforgivable Curses and Nonverbal Magic.
