Maniac Magee is a phenomenal story about a young boy who faces homelessness, racism and prejudice as he struggles to find a place to call home. This teacher-created assessment is used in partnership with an art project to end a unit on Maniac Magee. It is composed of multiple choice, matching and short essay questions. In addition, the test includes an answer key. My students are allowed to use their book as I do ask for quotations to support their thinking.
