Zombies and a Social View of Language

Here is a link to a video that you and your students will love.

Through the story of Jack, a young man caught up in a zombie apocalypse, the video introduces students to the idea that language changes according to the context of use. This concept is central to the Literacy General Capability underpinning all learning areas of the Australian Curriculum.

The video is meant as a fun introduction, but also deliberately encourages students to read rather than just listen.
