Reflection: Constructed Response Assessment on The Horned Toad Prince - Section 2: Lesson Starter


By far, the most popular question students would ask the author is why didn't she write the story so that Reba Jo and the prince marry and live happily ever after.  When I probed students as to why they think she did not do this, most said because it would have seemed to reward Reba Jo for not keeping her promises.
