"I expect to see a great deal more effort for this weeks essay on the various varieties of venom antidotes, or I shall have to start handing out detentions to those dunces who get a 'D.'"
-- Severus Snape (OP15)
Homework, schoolwork assigned to be completed outside of class time, is part of the students’ lives at Hogwarts. Teachers assign essays, research, and other tasks which must be completed before the next time the class meets.
Details of homework assignment can be found in the entries for individual classes.
