Sydney to the Max Wiki

Do the Write Thing is the eleventh episode in Season 3 of Sydney to the Max. It first aired on June 11, 2021 to 0.33 million viewers.[1]


Sydney suspects her teacher, Ms. Anderson, has assigned everyone in her class historical figures to write about based on their race, and Emmy recognizes it as a microagression. When Sydney talks to her classmates, they confirm her suspicions and agree it’s time to stand up for themselves. They elect Sydney as their spokesperson to speak with their teacher. In the ’90s, Leo gives a great interview with a local newspaper about his work as founder and president of the school’s computer club. He is excited until the story runs and incorrectly features a picture of Max with the title of club president.
