In 2003, Max Brooks (son of director Mel Brooks) published a book entitled The Zombie Survival Guide. This work of fiction is written as a survival manual for the average person to use in the face of an outbreak of zombies.

The official website to The Zombie Survival Guide provides a nice introduction to the book.

This blog, inspired by The Zombie Survival Guide, will provide learning experiences for young adults in high school or undergrad school by using the subgenre of zombie horror fiction. While the learning experiences I will present could be used by students/learners independently, for consistence, I will write my blog entries under the assumption that a teacher or other learning facilitator is the primary audience for When Zombies Attack.

To get things started, introduce The Zombie Survival Guide, by clicking here to have your learners watch this clip of Max Brooks speaking at Westminster College (6 minutes, 13 seconds).
