Homeless Unit

We have been introduced to the

nonfiction homeless unit by way of

watching Maniac Magee. It seems as

the though the most important thing to

Maniac is having a home?

How does Maniac define home?

What were some of the places that he

called home?

How do you define home?


Homeless Unit

Go to the classroom,access the

assignment, and fill in the section

marked K which stands for what you

already know about being homeless as

well as the section marked W which

stands for what you want to learn about

being homeless.

Leave the section marked L blank as we

will fill that section out after we complete

the unit. The L will signify what we

learned about homelessness.

magazine about homelessness.

You must use:

● Description - to give a brief description of what it means to be homeless

● Cause and Effect - to highlight some the causes and effects of homelessness

● Problem and Solution - to share some problems of homelessness and what are

some solutions to homelessness.

You will be given a handout with some information to help you but you may go to other
