This lesson plan is a collection of short reading passages from the upcoming book Through the Night: A Zombie Novel Book One by Carlos Salinas. This is only the first reading passage (prologue and chapter one) and many more will be added to my store as I write the book and create them (so follow me for updates). Its high-interest story of young teens surviving a zombie apocalypse is aimed at young adult, teen, and new adult readers. Themes include: survival, honor, love, bullying, friendship, kindness, and triumph of the human spirit. It aims at engaging students in a gripping story while helping them improve their reading comprehension and use of reading strategies. This reading passage has six multiple-choice questions, twelve pages total, with answer key included. The questions range from the lower levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy to its higher levels. Questions include topics of story events as well as literary devices. These reading passages are ideal as homework, independent practice, warm-ups and do-nows. Feedback is welcome so please feel free to leave a comment on this lesson or send me a message! Thank you in advance.
