Here's a closer look at the star of Babbitt's heart-warming novel, Vaungaylen.
As students read The Search for Delicious have them note the various changes Vaungaylen’s character undergoes. Encourage students to fully engage in a critical read where they are citing explicitly from the text, and explaining the evidence [not just copying it and forgetting about it] There are four basic steps to follow: Brief one sentence summary of what was happening in the plot, evaluating Vaungaylen’s character at any point within the cited pages, citing the evidence explicitly, and explaining how the evidence supports the selected trait.
