PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This graphic organizer worksheet by Learnivores is intended to be used in conjunction with "Weird" Al Yankovic's "The Saga Begins" (to the tune of "American Pie") to teach students the conventions of epic poetry. This activity works with any epic poem and the students, especially Star Wars fans, enjoy the song.

Students must listen to the song and identify specific lines or information as examples of epic conventions.

In my experience, students should listen to the song once to get a basic understanding, and then listen again with the aim of filling in the graphic organizer. Explaining the activity, listening to the song 2-3 times, and completing the worksheet take approximately 15-20 minutes, depending on class discussion.

Note:
To protect the artist's copyright, neither lyrics nor the actual song recording are included. However, quotes from the song are used in the answer key as allowed by fair use for educational purposes. The official music video for this song is published on YouTube by the artist and the song is available for purchase in audio formats.
