The zombie lesson – reading and discussion lesson for HalloweenPosted: August 26, 2011
Can’t be bothered to read the blog? I wouldn’t bother either, here’s the worksheet: https://chrisspeck.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/the-zombie-lesson.doc
I quite like zombie films and most of my pre-intermediate and intermediate students do as well. Here is a three part Zombie lesson to get them talking and reading about the most popular undead monster in modern culture.
Pre- reading. – You can dictate these questions or cut them up and ask students to read them together
Reading – You could dictate a few comprehension questions about this or blank out a few of the words to make it a gap fill exercise.
Discussion – ask students in pairs to make their own zombie apocalypse plan outlining what they and their partner would do to survive the zombies. I put a few sentences students could finish but they could write anything. Help them out by giving them some ideas. What would they do if there really was a zombie threat? Would they go to the supermarket to get food, the DIY store to get weapons? Where would they go long term? How would they really survive?
****WARNING**** I wouldn’t do this lesson with students who aren’t familiar with the Zombie genre, younger students or students who wouldn’t like this kind of thing.
Here’s the worksheet again https://chrisspeck.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/the-zombie-lesson.doc
Let me know if this lesson worked or not.
