I really like the resource pages you provided, particularly the Legend of Sleepy Hollow characters list that provides a simple and clear character analysis.
An opportunity for improvement of this resource is to clarify a couple of paragraphs below the lesson plan breakdown. Is it quoted from the story?
Something I wonder about this resource is how to simplify the lesson plan for second-grade students. Do you think this could be adapted to a simpler level?
One new idea to consider in the design of this resource is coupling the lesson plan with a reader's theater or an opportunity to act it out in order to get students engaged.

I really like this lesson plan! I definitely think I will add it to my lessons this week in honor of Halloween so I can still integrate some reading and writing in something the students will be excited and engaged about. I really like how you used a Venn Diagram to compare/contrast the different versions of the same story. Graphic organizers are so helpful for visual learners. Also, I teach 5th grade and I know one of core standards also includes comparing and contrasting the same stories from differing points of view.

I love legends and the history of legends. I've been an Art teacher and FACS teacher for over 25 years, I am currently obtaining my endorsement in Language Arts. You have a Venn diagram, have you ever thought about using google draw. Here is a link to a Venn diagram for you.

I love audiobooks. This book is in the public domain. Have you ever used, Google Podcast? Here is a link to the audio book. I love the narrator.
