We are happy to make available this
Teacher’s Guide
to the Core Classicsversion of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow & Other Tales by WashingtonIrving. We are presenting it and other guides in an electronic format so that isfreely accessible to as many teachers as possible. This guide is one teacher’svision of how to make this book both understandable and enjoyable to fourthgrade students. The author has provided an abundance of questions in order toguide students through specific elements of the story, but you probably willwant to select among them according to the reading levels of your students.Consider them, as well as everything else in the guide, to be an option or asuggestion rather than a requirement or an obligation. No doubt you willstrive for a balance between reading for accuracy and promoting animaginative grasp of the themes and the story line.We hope that you find the background material, which is addressedspecifically to teachers, useful preparation for teaching the book. As always,Core Knowledge prefers to emphasize what to teach rather than how to teachit, but we also are interested in helping teachers share their experience of whatworks in the classroom. We hope this guide helps make the tales of Washington Irving
 
an adventure in reading for you and your students.The pages cited in this guide refer to the 1999 Core Knowledge edition of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Other Tales.
