Are your scholars reading Jerry Spinelli's Maniac Magee? If so, use this textual analysis packet and instructional activity guide to drive deeper thinking about the characters, create personal connections, and apply historical contexts to the text. Learners explore segregation, reading an informational text for more understanding. They mark the text and answer eight comprehension questions (seven multiple choice and one short answer). There are some debriefing questions to guide thinking for two of the questions, and debate should be encouraged! The text and questions can be found in the Maniac Magee reading packet; use the packet to guide learning through the entire story.
