In the game titled After the Storm, students are Editor-in-Chief at the community newspaper, The Daily Byte. They manage staff, review articles, draft memos, and make critical decisions about informing the community after a devastating storm.

And in this particular episode, when The Daily Byte's lead reporter comes to the Editor-in-Chief with a tip that the Mayor is misusing relief funds, they find themselves in the midst of a potential political scandal as they sift through contradictory evidence to determine whether to publish her article.

Are your students ready to be the boss, make big decisions, and gain critical literacy and leadership skills along the way?
