Flexibility and Adaptability

Anchor Standard in Reading CCRA.R.7:
Integrate and evaluate content presented in diverse media and formats.

Austen is furious about the situation in Fog Hollow, one of Port Douglas’ poorest neighborhoods. The trouble is almost certainly coming from the reopened power plant, but a solution seems slow. Austen is planning a PSA for the clinic’s Facebook page to raise awareness but he’s not very detail-oriented. Brendan, who has done a lot of research on this issue, feels ignored by Austen and frustrated by his disorganization. Brendan makes a case for leading the project. Meanwhile, Maggie Ito of The Daily Byte is suffering from a mysterious arm injury, but she won’t stop texting long enough to get examined.
