The Avonlea Herald
Under the guidance of Rachel Lynde, who has always had a 'nose-for-news', the children start up The Avonlea Herald, a weekly newspaper. Anne works hard to be made editor. The other children gladly fill their respective posts. As they are working on their first issue, a big story breaks in Avonlea, sending the whole "staff" into action. Anne, in her enthusiasm, takes over all departments. On top of that, her dictatorial management style disheartens the other children. Initially frustrated with "her staff," she comes to realize that it is her own attitude that is the problem. When she allows everyone to have a sense of ownership and to feel the rewards of contributing, the news team starts to function smoothly and the resulting issue is a great success.
