A day on the job for Bellevue-based middle school teacher David Hunter starts just like any other teacher’s day: He gets to class, settles his students down and takes attendance before he gets down to business — talking about zombies and geography.
Hunter’s unique approach takes subjects that some kids struggle to pay attention to and turn them into something that they look forward to. His idea was to create a full geography curriculum (using National Geography Standards) taught in the context of a zombie apocalypse. Using textbooks, teaching plans and role playing as tools, he draws his students into a dynamic scenario that allows them to have fun while learning.
