This activity is one of my FAVORITES! First, to help with this activity, I suggest purchasing an app that allows students to transform their selfies into zombies (zelfies!). There are quite a few out there. The app I used is "ZombieFaced." You do need to pay for it, but it really does help with engagement in this activity.
Then, use this packet to help with the writing process. In the packet includes a brainstorming sheet, a general outline for writing, a sample I wrote for my students for modeling purposes, and a rubric for grading. For this assignment, students are encouraged to focus on writing with sensory details and other specific writing techniques such as: repetition for effect, hyphenated modifiers, magic 3, and expanded moment.
