Harry Potter
Background Information: For this film, there are many different locations I will be observing. For
the thirty minutes that I will be observing there are four major locations on which the scenes of
Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone have been filmed. The first is in Harrys home; Harry lives
with his maternal Aunt, Uncle, and their son on Privet Drive. The second is Diagon Alley; this is
where Hagrid and Harry go to visit the bank to extract something secretive, and some money to
3
go shopping for school supplies for Harry. The third is the train station: Platform 94; here Harry
learns how to get to his required destination: The Hogwarts Express in the depths of his designated
platform. He gets there through a train station located in London. The fourth is the school itself:
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry; here Harry goes to school and meet his new friends
along with some enemies
Vocabulary: Important words relevant to the observations and examples
Muggle(s) - Anyone that is incapable of performing magic; who has magic and non-magic
blood in them.
Cauldron A container, of sorts, that is used to brew potions.
Avada Kedavra the Killing curse/spell.
Death Eaters They are those who follow Voldemort and are summoned by their dark
mark which is a tattoo comprised of the body of a snake but the head of a skull.
Auror A person that captures wizarding criminals who commit crimes by using dark
magic.
Polyjuice Potion A potion that, when consumed, allows a person to shape shift into
another person or creature for a limited amount of time. The juice is made with a blend of
juices, herbs, and something that the person that one would like to resemble has on their
body like a piece of hair.
Parseltongue A language that is spoken between a human and a snake. Only Harry and
Voldemort are known to be able to speak this.
Confundus Charm Causes a person to be confused or bewitched.
Patronus a protection method against a persons worst fear.
Penseive- Used to view memories.
Figured World: A figured world is a substantial social network that had certain norm, rules, and
regulations that should reflect the adequate behavior of every person in the community.
There are two sets of norms that Harry has to follow; they are rules that Harry has to follow
at home and those at school (Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry). At home Harry
is not allowed to sleep in an adequate dormitory, he has to sleep in a small space under the
stairs. At home, Harry is to serve his aunt, uncle, and cousin prior to eating himself, if he
gets to eat. At home, Harry is to clean his own space as well as things that he is told to
clean without hindrance.
Harrys norms at Hogwarts: Harry has a certain dorm, as we say in college, that he has
to sleep in. At Hogwarts, Harry is to serve himself from an assortment of foods. At school,
Harry is to clean up after himself (cleaning his room and study space, everything else is
done for him).
Some of the rules that everyone has to follow at Hogwarts goes as follows: Everyone is to
be prepared for class. No one is to enter the Dark Forest at any time due to the fact that
there are dark creatures that live there and the school has no power over. Every student is
to go to their dormitories at the time that is specified. No student is to roam around the
campus at any time (Especially not the third floor corridor on the right-hand side!).

Students are not to leave the school grounds unless give permission to. And last, but not
least, no student is to use magic inappropriately.
Actors: An actor/actress is anyone who holds either a main role, or role that has substantial
influence towards the plot of the story. An actor/actress could be either a protagonist or antagonist.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
Harry Potter - Harry is an adopted maternal nephew of his Aunt Petunia Dursley
and Uncle Vernon Dursley, and his cousin Dudley Dursley. He is treated in an illmanner in his home. His room is a small space under the stairs. Harry is an
amateur practitioner of magic. He knows very little about magic and how to use it,
but he is very keen on mastering it. He is very loyal and committed to his friends
and vice versa. He, oblivious to the fact, holds a very important role in the magic
world due to his parents position. He is very determined to prove his worth and
ends up running into some sort of trouble.
Petunia, Vernon, and Dudley Dursley This is Harrys mothers, Lily, sister and
brother-in-law and their son. Petunia had disliked Lily ever since it was apparent
that she had magic powers and Petunia considered her a freak. Because they
didnt like Lily and the fact that they didnt want anything to do with her, the
Dursley family are malevolent towards Harry.
Rubeus Hagrid He guards Harry. He is the official keeper of keys and ground at
Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. He helped deliver to Harry the mail
that stated that he was given an acceptance to the school. He also helps Harry
through his hard times through school. On the night of his birthday, Hagrid finally
came to Harry to bring him his letter to Hogwarts and a birthday cake. Hagrid
personally came because Vernon refuses to let him read the letters that Harry has
been receiving for the past week. During his very first visit to Diagon Alley,
Hagrid helped Harry with everything he may ever need at Hogwarts.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
Harry Potter In this film, Harry is a very misunderstood person, whether it be by
friends or officials. Harry was forcefully placed as a contestant in the games by
Barty Crouch Jr., who we find out later was disguised as Moody ad was drinking
polyjuice potion. Harry learns the strength of teamwork and friendships as this
film progresses.
Hermoine Granger She is one of Harrys two best friends. She is known for her
vast knowledge in everything magic. She is very loyal and helpful to Harry and
Ron whenever they need assistance or help.
Ronald Ron Weasley Ron is Harrys first best friend; they met on a train their
first year and have been close ever since. In this movie we learn that Ron jumps
quickly to presumptions and that lands him in a bad place with Harry. We learn
that Ron thought that Harry put his name in the goblet of fire without telling him
first, but in actuality, someone else put his name in.
Albus Dumbledore He is the head master of the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft
and Wizardry. He currently possesses the elder wand which is the most

Assignment One: Observations 1-3

Radha Patel
Monday, September 21, 2015

powerful wand in all of History. He is very protective of Harry but doesnt always
believe him. He, sometimes, councils Harry when he is gloomy or unsteady.
Alastor Mad-eye Moody - He is a former auror who helped lock away most of
the criminals that reside in the Prison of Azkaban. He, hence his name, has one
crazy eye. It is almost like a fake eye that still functions, but looks odd popping
out of his head. He was requested upon by Dumbledore to fill in as the Defense
Against the Dark Arts professor for the new year. He freaked almost every one
out the first day in class by using forbidden magic, forbidden as spells that the
students are not allowed to use.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, Part 2
Harry Potter Just as he was destined, Harry would fight against Voldemort.
Now that he, along with the help of Hermoine and Ron, has destroyed all, but one,
Horcrauxs, the time has come to have their ultimate fight. Who will win:
Voldemort or Harry Potter?
Hermoine Granger Harmoine has used her extensive knowledge to help find and
destroy all of the Horcruxs. She, along with Ron and all of the allies of
Hogwarts, is put to the test. They have to defend Hogwarts and make sure that
they win.
Ronald Ron Weasley Ron and Hermoine finally have their kiss. They are
officially together. After another fight with Harry, Ron has come to his senses and
come back with Harry and Hermoine to find and destroy all of the remaining
Horcruxs. He loses family, he lost his brother.
Severus Snape- Held the knowledge that Harry was to and should know. He loved
Harrys mother ever since he laid eyes on her. The knowledge that Snape that
held about Harry and his parents was very important. Snape knows the story of
Harrys parents; how they met and how Snape came to hate James Potter. This nit
of information managed to change the mind of Harry about how he perceived
Snape.
Voldemort- He dies in this film. He and Harry have their final fight together.
Neville Longbottom Neville is one of the only reasons why Hermoine and Ron
were still alive. He killed Nagini with the Gryffindor sword

The Domain: The domain is the shared community comprised of people of common goals and/
or interests that meet up to share ideas, outcomes, and findings. Essentially, the domain is the
judgement-free zone where people of common interests come together to learn together, and
from one another.
The domain in all of the Harry Potter films is The Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and
Wizardry. This is the one place that almost every scene is shot in. Harry along with his
friends and fellow students gathered here every school-year, and non-school-year, to learn
together and have fun. Everyone learned and made friends together.
Practices of the Community: Specific practices of community can be used and expanded upon in
many cases. For instance, from my understanding, the capabilities and cooperativeness of

Assignment One: Observations 1-3

Radha Patel
Monday, September 21, 2015

communities can be used in schools- group work; workplace- where smaller groups get together
to give different approaches to any problem(s).
The Horcrouxs that Harry, Ron, and Hermoine find and destroy: Ever since the beginning
of the film series, we see that Harry is always finding pieces of Voldemort to destroy. In
Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, by touching the stone and then Voldemorts face,
Harry is destroying him. In Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2, Harry along with
his friends help annihilate Voldemort by destroying his horcrouxs: Ravenclaws Diadem,
and Naigni.
Communities of Practice: Communities of practice are interests and goals that are incorporated
into a learning style that helps the members of the community learn from and improve upon
subjects that someone else may have known but not you. These sort of practices can expand beyond
the domain if need be.
Harry Potter and the Order of Phoenix (not one of my observations)- In this film we see
that this Professor Umbridge, sent to Hogwarts by the Minister of Magic, is creating all
these rules and laws that created a plethora of restrictions for the students. She also
discontinued a class, The Defense Against the Dark Arts (of course!). Because she did this,
Harry and a group of his friends and fellow students got together and started practicing
magic. They started doing this because they believed that by not practicing their ability to
defend themselves if any danger comes upon them, they will be defenseless.
Artifacts: An artifact is an object, in any form, that holds major significance towards the plot of
the story or to a community.
Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone
Deluminator This is the first magical object that we see in the movie.
Dumbledore uses this to take away the light from the street lamps.
Gringotts Bank Money Harry gets this when he and Hagrid go to the bank to
extract some money for his school stuff.
Harrys Scar Harrys scar symbolizes the struggle that his parents went through
to make sure that he doesnt die. That is the mark that Voldemort left on his
forehead when he tried to kill Harry when he was a baby.
Sorcerers Stone the basis of the movie. This stone holds the power to make
anyone immortal.
The Cloak of Invisibility One of the three elements to the Deathly Hallows. It
allows a person to become hidden. When you wear the cloak, you become
invisible.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
The manky old boot aka Portkey - this is a form of transportation that allows a
person to move from one place to another over a long distance.
The Dark Mark this is the mark that both symbolizes and summons the
followers of Voldemort and Voldemort himself.
Lucius Malfoys Cane This is a cane that has the head of a snake. He used it to
latch onto Harrys foot to warn him off/tell him to enjoy himself both at once.
Triwizard Trophy the winner of the triwizard tournament will receive this
trophy.

Mad-Eye Moodys Flask Mad Eye had this on him at all times to drink
polyjuice potion from it. It was Barty Crouch Jr. who impersonated himself as
Mad Eye Moody.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, Part 2
The Lost Diadem of Ravenclaw This is a crown like object that belonged to
Ravenclaw herself. The only person who knew where it was Ravenclaws
daughter who was a ghost who resided in the halls close to the Ravenclaw
common room. She located it to be in the Room of Requirements.
Penseive an apparatus that allows a person to view memories or events that took
place in a persons life by putting mere tears or an actual memory strand in the
apparatus.
The Prophecy Harrys prophecy is to kill, or be killed by, Voldemort.
The Resurrection Stone one of the three elements to the Deathly Hallows. It
allows a person to bring back someone from the dead.
The Sword of Gryffindor It belonged to Gryffindor, himself when he was alive.
The sword was given to Harry by Dumbledore as a present but it only appears
when it is needed and only to those who are worthy.

Owl- used to send and receive mail.
Quills- used to write letters and notes.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

how and why Snape felt the things he did toward his dad, his mom, and him.
Harry got to see a side of Snape that no-one else but Dumbledore go to see.

Its is night time in Surrey, England and the movie begins with an owl flying off of a road sign
that read: Privet Drive. We now see Professor Albus Dumblodore with an apparatus that enables
him to capture light into a container, of sorts. After collecting the light from various street lamps,
we hear the sound of a cat meowing. This cat happens to be Professor Minerva McGonagall. She
then shape-shifts into a human being. Both Professor Dumbledore and Professor McGonagall are
fairly old. Dumbledore and McGonagall are now speaking about a baby boy and a person, who
Dumbledore trusts greatly in, flying down to the ground, from the sky, in a flying motorcycle that
has an extra seating attachment on it. In that seat, Hagrid had a sleeping baby in it. McGonagall
tries to convince Dumbledore to not give Harry to his only family: his maternal aunt and uncle. As
Dumbledore lays Harry on the front porch of the Drusley family home, Dumbledore also places a
letter next to Harry. Dumbledore says Good luck Harry, and the camera zooms into the scar on
Harrys forehead. His Aunt Petunia Dursley and Uncle Vernon Dursley along with their son
Dudley Dursley, are seen to be very rude and unaffectionate to Harry. Aunt Petunia rudely wakes
Harry up after which Dudely jumps up and down on the stairs, under which Harry resides. Harry
is given a very tiny cupboard under the stairs to live in; it happens to be very compacted and messy.
Its Dudleys birthday. Harry, as usual mornings, is told to serve the breakfast. Dudley is a very
spoiled child; He counted the presents that his parents got him and complained about how he got
less presents this year than last year. The family is taking a trip to the zoo. Before getting into the
car, uncle Vernon warns Harry of no funny-business, or no food for a week.

Time: 6:01-12:00

While in the Reptile House, the Dursley family try to get an anaconda to move in its cage. Harry
then starts to speak with the anaconda. Dudley then starts tapping onto the glass. Harry makes the
glass wall that encages the anaconda disappear causing the anaconda to escape and Dudley to get
stuck. After coming home, aunt Petunia takes Dudley to change out of his spoiled clothing. Uncle
Vernon takes Harry by his hair and, basically, throws him into his little cupboard saying that
Theres no such thing as magic, after asking him how the glass wall disappeared. The next scene
starts with an owl slipping a letter through the front door. Then we see aunt Petunia taking a picture
of Dudely dressed in his new school uniform that he will be wearing to a private school. While
Harry just looks at it like its a jokers outfit. Harry gets his first ever letter, it is from The Hogwarts
School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Harrys uncle and aunt immediately ripe the letter even before
opening it. Uncle Vernon even drilled a wooden panel onto the door message slot. Vernon just
went on to burn each letter.

Time: 12:01-18:00

The following Sunday the Dursley house erupted with letters upon letters from Hogwarts School
of Witchcraft and Wizardry. After being blasted with a plethora of letters, the family just up and
moved to a remote tower-house on an island, in the middle of nowhere. At 12:00 midnight, Harry
makes a wish. And at the exact moment that Harry make his wish, lo and behold Hagrid comes
busting through the front door, literally. When he enters the home, Vernon comes down with his
shot guns, trying to threaten Hagrid to leave, but Hagrid ends up bending Vernons gun and tells
him to dry up as he seems like a great prune. He then gives Harry a birthday cake that he baked
words and all just for Harry. Hagrid goes on to tell Harry that he is a wizard, to which Harry

Radha Patel

replies that hes just HarryJust Harry. Hagrid gives him his letter that he has been getting for
the past week. Petunia starts talking about how her parents were so happy for and proud of her
sister (Harrys mother), and how she thought her sister was a freak. She then started saying rude
things about her sister- Lily- and her sisters husband- James Potter. Hagrid spots Dudley eating
Harrys birthday cake and uses magic to give him a tail.

Time: 18:01-24:00

Hagrid and Harry then go on to buy the required materials and equipment for the class. They are
to bring with them a 2 Pewter Cauldron, and bring if they desire, either an owl, a cat, or a toad,
robes for uniform, and some dragon skinned gloves. The two of them go into a pub designated for
non-muggle, magic folks. Harry is introduced to Professor Quirrell, the Defense Against the Dark
Arts teacher. Quirrell stutters a lot. Harry and Hagrid go out back and Hagrid taps on a few bricks
on the wall and the bricks start to shift so they make a walk way to Diagon Alley; which is basically
an outlet mall, of sorts, that contains all youd need to go to both school and bank.

Time: 24:01-30:00

Hagrid and Harry go into the Gringotts Bank to extract some money from Harrys parents bank
so they can go shopping for school supplies. The bank is managed by goblins so when Harry enters
the bank, hes totally stunned. Hagrid informs one of the Goblins that Harry would like to make a
withdrawal from his bank account. Hagrid also gives that same Goblin a letter sent by
Dumbledore to withdraw something from vault you-know-which; which contains something that
deals with you-know-who, who we find out in a bit is Voldemort (with a silent T). Harry, Hagrid,
and a different Goblin take a trip to the vaults and get their money and top secretive package,
respectively. The vaults that are shown seem very old and look like they are cemetery headstones.
Harry goes into Ollivanders wand shop to get his final, and most important necessities: a wand.
He trues two different wands before he gets the right one. In order to see if the wand works for
you, youd have to give it a swish and see if it works. It took Harry three tries to find that wand
that worked for him; meaning, Harry had tested out three wands and the third was the only one
that worked for him. The only one that worked for Harry was the one whose brother gave him his
scar. The wand that is compatible with Harry was made of a Phoenixs tail feather. That same
Phoenix, laid just one other feather that was also made into a wand that is compatible with the
owner who gave Harry his scar. Ollivander goes on to say that the one who gave Harry his scar
has a name that is not to be spoken.
Observation #2: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (45 Minutes)
Time : 0:00-6:00
The movie begins with a large snake, most likely an anaconda, slithering on a barren cemetery that
has an angle statue depicting a skeleton inside the clothing of a grim reaper and its scythe. It is, as
usual, very dark out and the name of the movie starts to zoom into the camera, or vice versa. We
get a wide shot of a living quarter and in the background is the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and
Wizardry. We start the movie with an elderly man setting his stove on fire to heat up his water
kettle; as he is doing so, he see a light turn on in the living quarter next door and goes over to see
whats going on. The mood is set to be very eerie as he starts to climb the stairs that will eventually
lead him into the house. The house that he, now, has entered is very retro and dusty (it could use a

maids help). There are spider webs everywhere and the stairs that he climbs up are very creaky.
As the old man, which we find out is the care taker of muggles, inconspicuously snoops into the
conversation that is being taken place, the large snake slithers past the old mans leg and into the
room. In the room, there are three people; two, Wormtail and Barty Crouch Jr., kneeling in front
of the seemingly scrawny figure, Lord Voldemort, sitting on the lounge chair. The snake, Nagini,
slithers up to Voldemort and whispers, in a language called parseltongue, to him about how the
old man outside is listening in on them. Voldemort then uses the killing curse, Avada Kedavra, to
kill the old man.
Harry wakes up the sound of Hermoines voice commanding Harry to wake up; she is holding a
candle next to his face. Harry was dreaming about that encounter that I described just above.
Haermoine also wakes Ron up.

Time: 6:01-12:00

After breakfast Harry, Ron, Rons family, and two people that are friends of Rons dad meet up at
the top of a hill. They all gather around a manky old boot that is a port key, a portal, that, when
it is held onto, can take them to a different place. Basically, it just takes them from the normal
London city, to the location of that which is desired. They landed where the Quidditch World Cup
was being held. As soon as they all got there, Harr, Ron, and Rons family all went into a small
tent that resembled a well-furnished and fabricated home. In the arena, they encountered Draco
Malfoy and his father who attempted to belittle them by insulting their economic status by saying
that if it rains, they- Harry, Ron, and Rons Family- will know first since they have seats all the
way at the top of the arena. After which, Draco went on to boast about how the Minister of Magic
invited Draco and his father to join him in the VIP seats. The crowd was very erratic and ecstatic
about the game, they cheered loudly. The two teams came out into the arena. The worlds best
seeker was introduces: Viktor Krum. After the game finished, they all went back into their tent.
Ron was talking about how Viktor was not just an athlete, but also and artist with the way he plays.
Rons dad heard some commotion outside so he went to investigate. Everyone started singing a
song about how Ron loves Viktor. They sang Viktor, I love you; Viktor, I doWhen were apart
my heart beats only for you Rons dad comes back into the tent to tell them that they have to
leave that instant. People were running and screaming outside and fires were starting all over the
place. People were screaming about how the Death Eaters were there. Everyone was to return to
the portkey. In an attempt to run back to the portkey, Harry tripped and fell and got, accidentally,
kicked in the face by passer-bys. Next we see Barty Crouch Jr. summoning Voldemort by using
his dark mark. Barty summoned a hologram of Voldemort by saying Morsmordre. The hologram
appeared as a green skull with a snake expelling from its mouth.

Time: 12:01-18:00

Harry wakes up just in time to see that happen. Barty sees Harry. Ron and Hermonie come back
to find Harry. As soon as Harry saw the mark, his scar started to hurt. The Minister of Magic came
and brought Harry and them back. Ron, Harry, and Ron are on their way back to Hogwarts now
on the train. Hermoine noticed that Harry was showing signs of discomfort when the pain of his
scar started to resurface again. She said that Sirius will want to hear about this. But inevitably,
Harry sent a letter to Sirius about his condition; Harrys owl delivered it to Sirius, of course. We
now see a cluster of Pegasus flying in a carriage to Hogwarts. We also see a ship rise from the
waters to the surface, the emblem on the sail resembles that of The Durmstrand School.
Dumbledore commences the dinner by welcoming back all of Hogwarts faculty, staff, and

Assignment One: Observations 1-3

Radha Patel
Monday, September 21, 2015

students. He also addresses the fact that Hogwarts has been chose to host a legendary event: The
Triwizard Tournament which brings three schools together to participate into the contests that
will follow. Each school is allowed to choose only one student to participate in the games.
Dumbledore first introduces the lovely ladies of the Beauxbatons Academy of Magic and their
headmistress, Madame Maxime.

Time: 18:00-1-24:00

Dumbledore then introduces the proud sons of Durmstrand and their high master, Igor Karkaroff.
The guys come into the room with their sticks and perform and introduction that is followed by a
dragon made of fire; it goes away instantaneously. It is raining out and we see a person waling in
the muddy water puddles outside of the Hogwarts campus. He has a cane. Dumbledore starts
speaking of the tasks that the student who would win must face while the contest proceeds.
Dumbledore stated that due to the recent incidents that have taken place, like the Quidditch World
Championship, the ministry of magic has set a new rule that says that no student under the age of
17 can participate in the games, to which everyone started booing. Before announcing that bit of
news, an Auror names Alastor Mad-eye Moody enters the dining hall, after which the ceiling of
the hall starts to resemble and sound like a storm. Dumbledore greets him. Bartimus Crouch Sr.
announces the age restriction of entering the tournament. The students are informed that in order
to enter the tournament, the student must be chosen. They can be chosen by placing their name on
a slit of paper and placing it in the goblet of fire. We see Karkaroff go into the room which has the
goblet of fire in it.

Time: 24:01-30:00

Next we see a class in session. Moody introduces himself to the class as the Defense Against the
Darks arts professor. He speaks of the Unforgivable curses, there are three. The first one is the
Imperius curse which is a curse that makes a being vulnerable and susceptible to suggestion,
making the victim do anything that the victimizer desires. The second curse is Cruciatus curse,
which is known as the torture curse. The third curse is called the Killing curse, which is a curse
that kills hence the name. Moody demonstrates the three curses on an insect. Moody states that
there has been only one person in history who has survived the Killing curse, and that he was
sitting the room in which they were: Harry Potter. Moody then drinks his signature drink, which
we find out later is a polyjuice potion. As Harry, Hermoine, and Ron walk down the stairs to the
ground floor, they discussed how terrifying it was to be in the same room as Moody because of
the things the he was doing and talking about. On their way down, they saw Neville moping about
by a window that has a sorrowful man made of glass designed onto it. Moody comes down to get
Neville about what happened and to try and appease him a bit, if at all. Cedric Digory, one of
Rons fathers friends son, which Harry, Ron and Hermoine met at the portkey earlier, is now
placing his name in the goblet of fire. The fire in the goblet is blue. Ron and Harry discuss about
being able to participate in the contest until the next three years. I an attempt, which fails, to put
their names into the goblet of fire, Fred and George drink a potion to help them cross the age-line
that Dumbledore drew.

Time: 30:01- 36:00

They, Fred and George, of course, failed and got thrown out the age-line ring and transformed into
an older image of themselves. They start to fight, looks like a playful fight. We now see Viktor
Krum walk into the room to place his name in the goblet of fire; he has come with his headmaster

Igor Karkaroff. Hermoine and Karkaroff have a moment. Dumbledore begins the choosing
ceremony by diming all of the lights in the room. The goblet of fire chooses the champion in each
school, not Dumbledore by the way. The first champion comes from the Durmstrand: Viktor Krum.
The second comes from The Beauxbatons academy: Fleur Delacour. The third comes from
Hogwarts, specifically Hufflepuff: Cedric Digory. Dumbledore then announces that the three
contestants have been chosen and then shows the trophy that they could potentially win. Those
three should be the only contestants, but no there is one more name that comes from the goblet,
shocker! This fourth contestant happens to be Harry Potter. We can now assume that it was Igor
who put Harrys name into the goblet since earlier he went into the room by himself. Harry, along
with everyone else, is surprised at this fact. Ron is more angry then surprised. Someone yells that
hes a cheat, and hes not even 17 yet. Harry walks into the room in which everyone is meeting
up and Dumbledore rushes in to determine what happened and whether or not Harry placed his
name in the goblet of fire or if he asked someone to put his name in it. But Moody says that that
kind of magic is way beyond the talents of a fourth year. Barty says that Harry has to participate
in the competition since the goblet creates a binding contract between the contestant and the goblet.

Time: 36:01-42:00

Dumbledore, McGonagall, Snape, and Moody begin to discuss what they should do about this
incident. Everyone but McGonagall agree that Harry has to participate in the games and that there
was no way that Harry could be taken out. Ron is angry with Harry because he believe that Harry
put his name in the goblet of fire without telling him. Harry says that he didnt put his name in the
goblet but Ron still doesnt believe him. Next day starts with an interview that Rita Skeeter, the
daily prophet editor. They both go into a broom-cupboard. She asks him questions about his skills
and his past. She asks about what his parents would feel is they were alive now about what either
Harry has done or what hes going through.

Time: 42:01-45:00

Sirius Black, Harrys uncle, sends a response to Harrys mail that he sent to him earlier with his
owl. Sirius instructs Harry to speak with his face to face on Saturday at 1:00 am in the Gryffindor
Common Room and to make sure hes alone. Harry follows Sirius instructions. He starts reading

second to last Horcrux: the Lost Diadem of Ravenclaw. Crab began to set fires around the room
and the spread fast. Afraid, Draco also started climbing the chairs. Harry set up a wall made of
water to momentarily hinder the fire from touching them until they all are accessible to a broom.

with a large tooth; leaving Nagini to be the final Horcrux that is left of Voldemort before he will
die. Voldemort feels this and takes Nagini with him to protect her. Harry realizes that Nagini is

Assignment One Reflection:

I am particularly proud of the detailed attention that I gave to all of my observations and
examples, I am also proud of the fact that I tried to keep this observation detailed but
short and fun to keep the attention of my readers. I know that this may seem a bit cocky
but this is the first time in my English career that, if I had a chance to revise and rewrite, I
would not. I am proud of the effort that I put in my observations.
One of the many comments that I was given that I used in my revision is when Veronica
Garcia commented that I don't quite understand why this would be considered a literacy
practice? I suggest that you maybe provide an explanation on HOW Harry's dreams of
Voldemort would be a literacy practice. Is this Voldemort's way of trying to
communicate to Harry that he is back? Clarify this in your explanation. This comment
helped me see that I did not completely specify the reason why I thought that Harry
Potters Dream from Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire was a literary device. What did
not help me much was when Valentina Sosa commented I think you should edit your
paper differently. Maybe making the heading bold or something. This will help to make
your paper better to understand. If you have questions just ask me in class and it will
explain myself a bit better; I understand it is more of a grammatical issue but I thought
that I organized my observations and examples respectively (please let me know if I
should change my formatting).

I believe that I went above and beyond on two occasions. I, in the introduction, gave
some general background to the readers about the different locations that we will
encounter on our journey through these observations. I gave some background
information that incorporated four of the main locations that we will encounter, which
the first is n Harrys homethe second is Diagon Alleythe third is the train station
the fourth is the school itself.
I also went above and beyond when I compiled a list of vocabulary words that the readers
can benefit from as they read my observations and examples since they may not know
those words, whether they were new to the film series or just brushed-up on it.
I discovered that I used a bit of three of the five SLOs. I used, I think, Rhetorical
Knowledge when discussing the set of norms that Harry had to follow when was at home
and when he was in school. I said that there are two sets of norms that Harry has to
follow; they are rules that Harry has to follow at home and those at school (Hogwarts
School of Witchcraft and Wizardry). In this paragraph I explained the different sets of
morns that Harry would have to which were considered appropriate and were required in
the series.
The second SLO that, I think, I discovered that I used was Knowledge of Convention. I
used this when I was specifying how I had organized my observations. In order to clarify
at which intervals I was observing I said The time(s) that I have recorded for this film are
equivalent to the timing in the movie; i.e 0:00-6:00 means that I have seen the first six
minutes of the film. This helps the reader follow along easier, instead of getting confused
when seeing the time intervals.
The third SLO that, I thin, I used in my assignment was the Composing Process. When
giving the examples of Actors, Communities of Practice, Artifacts, and Literacy Practices,
I subcategorized each subtopic (like Actors, Artifacts. etc.) into more subheading (like
Harry Potter and the Sorcerers Stone, HP and the Goblet of Fire, and Harry Potter and the
Deathly Hallows, Part 2) which had detailed items specific to each of those subheadings.
