I have an MFA in Creative Writing for Children and Young Adults. I was a substitute teacher for three years before teaching full-time on Outschool. I also teach English Composition as an adjunct university professor. I have been blessed to discuss Leigh Bardugo in the classroom multiple times. She is an excellent storyteller and world builder. She creates dark and tragic magical worlds that I feel honored to share with students! Her books offer an excellent opportunity to discuss this immersive and sinister world. Since this world is based off of Russian folklore, there is so much to be learned from this series, especially for students who love reading historical fiction or have any interest in creative writing. This book particularly leads to good discussion about politics and power, right and wrong, and good versus evil.  
Students will read approximately four chapters a week on their own time. Each Sunday, students will have access to the new video and a corresponding one page worksheet with discussion questions and places for fill-in-the blank answers. Each week, I assign a short writing assignment focused around that week's discussion questions and ask the students to share their responses in the classroom. There are also daily activities each day like vocabulary words, an I Spy game, and a Kahoot! quiz to test their comprehension from the weekly chapters. 
Students will need a copy of Siege and Storm to read on their own. It can be borrowed from the library or even listened to as an audio book. The students will not need a physical copy of the story in class, although they may find it helpful to have while filling out their worksheets or working on their writing assignment.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The more questions, comments, and posts that students share in the classroom, the more I can understand their knowledge and comprehension of the topics we are discussing.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
According to Parents need to know that Siege and Storm is the second book in the Grisha Trilogy and picks up right where the first book, Shadow and Bone, left off. Like its predecessor, this installment contains Russian-inspired folklore, clothing, and words, and there's some violence (hand-to hand combat, knife fights, and encounters with flying monsters called volcra and other demon-type characters) and compelling romance (no sex beyond flirting, but Alina and Mal live together at the beginning of the novel). Some older teen characters drink wine.
