Are you looking to show your students the full-length movie of Maniac Magee? I've used this assignment after we have finished reading the novel. Easily use the free Nickelodeon movie on YouTube. The accompanying Novel vs. Movie assignment meets CCLS:
CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RL.6.7Compare and contrast the experience of reading a story, drama, or poem to listening to or viewing an audio, video, or live version of the text, including contrasting what they "see" and "hear" when reading the text to what they perceive when they listen or watch.
Compare and contrast texts in different forms or genres (e.g., stories and poems; historical novels and fantasy stories) in terms of their approaches to similar themes and topics.
