"Describe, with examples, the ways in which Transforming Spells must be adapted when performing Cross-Species Switches"
—The fourth year transfiguration homework[src]

Transforming Spells are transfiguration spells of unknown incantation; they are used to perform transformation magic.

Nature and Teaching

Transforming spells seem to be related to changing guinea fowl into guinea pigs, as these spells were the subject of an essay written for homework after a class on that charm[1].

As Professor McGonagall taught her fourth year students in Transfiguration class, Transforming Spells can and must be adapted in some manner in order to perform Cross-Species Switches. This was the subject of an essay they had to write for that night's homework[1].
