Product Description
While the story of Maniac Magee is highly engaging and fun to read, I think we can all agree it also addresses some pretty heavy and timely social issues: homelessness, death, depression, bullies, segregation, racism, cultural divides, and the importance of the family. What better way address these societal concerns that through the medium of such an inspiring character.

First quoted formally by Abraham Lincoln, the quote, “Actions speak louder than words,” must have been Jeffrey Lionel Maniac Magee’s motto. Without ever “preaching” to anyone, he simply “saw” and “acted.” Never seeking the limelight, he spotlighted the ills of his day and led by example, even if unknowingly.

These activities might best be used by either older, gifted or advanced students, but they may certainly be modified any way you wish to reach all older elementary to middle school students. While the reading level is at 4.7, the interest level is stated to be for grades 4-7.
