My name is Anna Marie Woloszyn, and I have been teaching 5th grade ELA for 15 years. This guide is appropriate for students grade 5-8. The questions in this guide ask students to use higher-level thinking skills to answer questions and provides a way for teachers to monitor student's comprehension while reading 'Maniac Magee'. Students are exposed to new vocabulary while learning grammar skills like dictionary use, antonyms, synonyms and context clues. Students will be asked to look back at the reading to answer questions using the question in the answer. Students are also asked to study characters to learn about author's purpose and character traits.
