One of our teacher-buddies shared an awesome zombie lesson plan with us. It was created by Tony Cerullo, and uses Max Brooks’ novel World War Z to help students explore genre, metaphor, and creative writing. Unlike a few of the zombie-themed activities we’ve shared over the past few days, this one is quite a bit more in depth and should take a month to complete. It is recommended for grades 11-12 due to high level literary themes and a fairly substantial work load.

Because this is a substantial project, we figured it would be easier for you to simply download a PDF of the lesson plan and take it with you.
