Composition II
Zombies Apocalypse! A Survival Plan
Due in Blackboard by noon Wed., May 8
Assignment: To create a preparedness plan for the zombie apocalypse. The plan will
include “mini assignments” that will all be put together to create a final, complete
preparedness plan. All of the assignments must be included to successfully complete the
project. You (and a partner or two if you wish) will create a thorough and comprehensive
strategy to survive the (hopefully) fictional zombie apocalypse that is sure to soon
devastate the earth. Be creative! 
Scenario: The earth is being overrun by zombies, caused by a mysterious infection that
brings the dead back to “life.” This infection is fast acting, and has overwhelmed all
major cities, toppled all forms of national government, and destroyed all social utilities.
Major metropolitan areas are completely overrun, and the threat is making its way to the
rural parts of the world. In short, the more populated an area is, the greater the threat.
Infestation of rural communities has begun, and social order is rapidly breaking down.
The attack is expected to last four weeks. And then there is…
You: You will create this action plan as if the previous scenario is happening to the world
now. This means that your current life is the start of this assignment. You are currently
enrolled at Redlands Community College, living at your current address, driving the
vehicle that you drive, your family is what it is now, and your current bank account,
belongings, pets, everything, is as it is now. So you have to create a real plan to deal with
the oncoming apocalypse, considering all factors of the scenario, and your life.
Length: 7-10 pages, made up of individual components put together to form a larger
project.
Audience: You and anyone with whom you plan to survive the apocalypse.
Sources: A minimum of 5 sources is required. These sources are going to be anything and
everything you can find that will help you be more prepared to survive. This means you
can research destinations you think will be safe, or survival tactics, or materials lists, or
defense tactics, etc. Research anything you think will help you survive. Sections 1 and 3
MUST include in-text citations in addition to maps and descriptions.
Documentation: You must choose use MLA. Be consistent throughout the project. A
works cited page is required. Each “mini assignment” will be eventually be placed into a
larger document that will contain everything from this project. Each mini assignment
will be a section of the larger essay, and should use MLA guidelines for section headings.
Internet Evaluation Sheet: In addition to the project, please turn in an Internet
Evaluation Sheet for every online source you use.
Mini Assignments: The following is a list of the individual parts that will make up the
larger project.
1. Short term plan (2 pages, minimum, not including any maps provided. Make sure
this section is thorough and complete.)
a. This portion will present all components of your plan to survive for the
immediate future (4 weeks). You will need to document your strategy by
providing information and justification for your immediate survival,
including:
i. Location, housing, food, water, defense, transport, heat, etc.
Include anything and everything that you need to complete this
part of the plan.
b. Provide justification for each item by describing what you need and what
you have access to, and how it would fulfill that need. If you do not have
immediate access to what you need, you must present information on how
you would acquire the supplies needed. Remember, social utilities are
gone.
2. Skill set profile (2-3 pages)
a. Create a profile for each person you intend to include in your long term
plan. This profile should indicate the following information:
i. Skills and knowledge for survival added to the group.
ii. Essential supplies/property owned.
iii. Medical conditions that may need attention.
b. Each profile should provide the above information in paragraph form,
using complete sentences. Remember, for each new member of your
survival group, more supplies are needed.
3. Escape plan (1 page for the escape plan, 1-2 pages for the story of the escape)
a. This portion will present your escape plan for when your short term plan
location becomes compromised. You need to document your strategy for
escape by addressing the following information:
i. Transportation, supplies taken, supplies needed to acquire, and
travel plan.
b. You will also need to tell the story of the escape. What happened that
forced you to run? How did it go down? Who survived and who didn’t?
How did you get to your new location? You will need to be creative and
descriptive for this portion of the project.
4. Supply list (1-2 pages)
a. This portion will present, in list form, the items that are need to for
survival for your short and long term plan. While major items will be
addressed and discussed in each of the above sections, this portion of the
project will act as a checklist of sorts.
i. Break your lists down into sections (food, water, medical, defense,
transportation, etc.), and list the items needed for that section.
Also indicate what you own or have access to, and what needs to
be acquired to complete the list. Again, your current situation will
dictate what you have access to. You can discuss this portion of
the project with family members and friends you plan to survive
with. Compile a complete list of supplies in hand, and of those
needed.
b. To be clear, this is a list, but it should contain specifics. Consider your
survival location, and the location of the needed supplies. Indicate the
location for each item on the list that you have access to. You do not need
to indicate locations for items that you need to acquire.
5. Presentation (electronic)
Include an overview of each section to discuss with the class. Maps and lists
should be included. You do not need to type out your entire story on slides, but
tell us how you will escape and survive.

Escape plan: This portion will present all components of your escape plan from your
current location. A detailed plan is required, and should not be a decision made in the
heat of the moment. Instead, consider the nature of world you live in: people are few,
danger is plentiful, supplies are difficult to come by but available, equipment is available,
and there is no law. This means that you can, and should, have a comprehensive plan in
place.
Escape Scenario: Your short term residence has been compromised. You are being
attacked by either a zombie hoard, or raiders who want to take all of your supplies,
regardless of what happens to you. Escape is your only option.
You will need to document your strategy by providing information and justification for

ii. Reference: any research used to gain knowledge
k. Miscellaneous: Include anything and everything that you need to complete
this part of the plan.
i. Evidence: text and ???

thorough and complete.
Story: In addition to the plan that you must create, you also must document the escape
itself by writing a creative piece that details the escape. This portion of the assignment
needs to be creative and detailed. It basically is a short story, so it should read like one.
Tell the story from the first person (your perspective, using “I” etc.) Be sure to address
all of the following:
1. A detailed account of what happened that forced you to run.
a. Who attacked you and why?
b. How did it happen?
c. Who survived and who didn’t? (not everyone will survive)
d. How you survived.
2. Your journey to safety.

your short and long term plan. You will need to indicate the specifics of the items
on your list, along with quantity needed (food, water, fuel) to accommodate for
the needs of your survival group.

transportation, etc.), and list the items needed for that section. Also
indicate what you own or have access too, and what needs to be acquired
to complete the list. Again, your current situation and location will dictate
what you have access to. You can discuss this portion of the project with
family members and friends you plan to survive with.
i. An additional subsection should be created for the items that need
to be acquired to accommodate the short and long term plans.
b. To be clear, this is a list, but it should contain specifics. Consider your
survival location, and the location of the needed supplies. Indicate the
location for each item on the list that you have access to. You do not need
to indicate locations for items that you need to acquire.
2. Make sure that you document any sources used to acquire the knowledge of what
is needed for short and long term survival.
Length: 2 pages (1 for each plan), minimum, not counting any additional materials
provided. Make sure this section is thorough and complete.
