Though it may sound far-fetched, Zombie-Based Learning is a real thing that has the potential to engage students in traditional subjects like geography, math, science and more.
Created by David Hunter, Zombie-Based Learning seeks to make subjects that are traditionally viewed as boring, more enjoyable by incorporating them into a narrative about a zombie apocalypse. Hunter, who has a Masters in Teaching, believes that through project-based learning, students will be capable of a higher order of learning than they would otherwise be through memorization alone.
So far, a geography-zombie-based curriculum has been made for grades six to eight. The goal is to make even more zombie-themed subjects should it prove popular enough. English is the subject that is planned next.
