Episode 5: "Not It"

 
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RI.5.8
Explain how an author uses reasons and evidence to support particular points in a text, identifying which reasons and evidence support which point(s).

EPISODE CHALLENGE:
Nobody wants to deal with the new client Herb —and it’s no wonder. He’s annoying, needy, and strange looking. The staffers keep passing him around like a hot potato; no one wants the responsibility. A closer look at his file, however, reveals the true nature of his problems—and allows him to get the care he needs.
