You may be fed up with The Walking Dead, but zombies are still an interesting topic. This is a 39 page collection of reading, writing, listening, and speaking practice for ESL students. The packet includes high-interest / low-level reading, readers theater scripts, scaffolding and formative assessment and includes a cumulative assessment. The lessons are multi-disciplinary covering figurative language, symbolism, cells, bacteria, psychology, chemistry concepts, and the grammar topics - possessives and reflexives. I truly believe that ESL students at all levels can comprehend complex subject matter if provided with the right level of scaffolding, simplified text, and motivation.
Students will read short passages about the following topics:
1. zombie bacteria
2. a university course titled "Zombies"
3. a chemistry concept as seen on The Walking Dead
4. cocaine use and the creation of zombie brain cells
Created for ESL but perfect for struggling readers and special education students as well.
