By J.K. Rowling
Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling, is book six in the Harry Potter series. This book begins with Harry accompanying Professor Dumbledore to the residence of Horace Slughorn. They are there to convince Horace to return to teaching at Hogwarts school of magic.
Creative Teaching Lesson Plans
Upon returning to Hogwarts, Snape is named the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. Professor Slughorn takes up the post of potions teacher. Harry is also having ‘private lessons’ with Professor Dumbledore. In these private lessons, Harry and Professor Dumbledore, take a journey to the past in various memories. These are the childhood memories that reveal the course of the nature of the younger Lord Voldemort.
The Immortal Technique,
Achieving Life after Death
The purpose of these lessons is to equip Harry with the knowledge and learning he needs to defeat the dark magic of his nemesis, Lord Voldemort. By retrieving Professor Slughorn’s memory of a conversation he has with a sixteen year old Tom Riddle, Harry and Dumbledore discover the alternate energy sources of Lord Voldemorts immortality. Many magic secrets are revealed.
Accidentally in Love
Despite all the seriousness going on with Lord Voldemort. Harry and his friends find themselves going through the typical teenage moments of discovering their first love. There are very funny events that occur to the characters in the love games that are played. Some based on the assumption of taking things at face value, and others are a result of desperation.
For the Tropic of Freedom Books Finders Keepers:
The main themes occurring for me in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince are those of assumption and expectation. Our actions or reactions are based accordingly. It is very important to note that so many of the actions we take or the reactions we have to things, are a result of what we expect and assumptions we make.
What are the assumptions and expectations made amongst the characters?
How do these assumptions and expectations affect the relationships between the characters as well as the characters individually?
How often have you assumed things because of expectations you have?
How often have you been hurt or disappointed because of it?
How many of your expectations are based on your assumptions?
How much are you limiting the possibilities of things you can experience because of your expectations and assumptions?
