Zombie movies have always held a special place in my heart. I will put up with any amount of bad acting and cheesy special effects a B-movie zombie flick can throw at me if it means a chance to thrill at the horrors of the dead rising from the grave. Like many young boys growing up, my cinematic and literary tastes tended toward the macabre. I read everything that Poe wrote, was a huge fan of Stephen King, and devoured classics such as Frankenstein and Dracula to slake my thirst for the bizarre and frightening. Years later, I was teaching English language arts to high school students full-time on Replica Audemar Piguet a community college campus. One of the greatest aspects of this job was the freedom it provided me to experiment with different approaches to the study of literature. In this particular case, this freedom manifested as a question: How do I incorporate zombies into my classroom? More importantly, how do I do this without being gratuitous? I knew the undead would hold the interest of my students, but just because something is interesting does not make it appropriate for the classroom. Well before my undead aspirations, a colleague and I developed a unit exploring advertising as literature, using James Twitchell’s Admit USA: The Triumph of Advertising in American Culture as a central text. One of Twitchell’s major in Adcult is that advertising is becoming a language we use to experience the world. In other words, we read the world around us (in part) by considering the advertisements that are ubiquitous to our culture. I began the ad unit by illustrating just how much students already knew about advertising (which was a lot) and moved on to a more in-depth study of the communicative power of ads
