Maniac Magee Lesson Plans
Print Free Handouts to Use With Maniac Magee

One of the most fun novels to share with students is Jerry Spinelli's Maniac Magee.  The unforgettable characters and the legend of Maniac paired with a plot that deals with real issues and family life create the perfect realistic story.  In the classroom, this book lends itself perfectly for independent or whole-class study. 

In our teaching unit, we provide handouts to guide students in analyzing literary elements, such as dramatic irony, conflict, and theme.  In addition, we  provide printables that teach students to study the author's craft by taking a look at things such as Spinelli's word choice and creation of realistic characters.  Creative writing opportunities are also provided in our unit.

We would like to share some of our printables free of charge.  Just click the link below to print them.  If you like these lesson ideas, consider purchasing our entire unit.  Buy it one time, and use it for years.  We hope you enjoy the free lessons!
