Mr. Johnson’s middle school class recently completed their reading of Jerry Spinelli’s novel, Maniac MaGee. His students reflected upon and discussed these issues as they studied the text: family, friendship, literacy, homelessness, and racism. Next, this group will consider the concepts of judgment, rejection, stereotypes, and success in Loser, another Spinelli novel.
