My name is Anna Marie Woloszyn. These journal activities for Maniac Magee, Ch. 13-14 and Ch. 16 ask students to apply their understanding of the book to answer questions in a thorough, thoughtful way. Students should use complete sentences and examples from the book, and will be asked to explain why they believe their answer to be correct. This writing activity could be used as an assessment of their comprehension on these chapters. Because it is a writing prompt, students will not only need to show their comprehension, but will be required to construct a thoughtful, written response. Possible answers are included, though because it is a written format, answers may vary.
