Description
Engaging reluctant readers is a common topic among library professionals as the literary lives of young people appear to be changing or declining. Although much research has already been conducted about the nature of reluctant readers, there is little on how to combat it and even less on alternative methods of delivering literacy. The combined use of a literature review and a case study are used to explore fan fiction. The literature review examines fan fiction and its purpose in the literary lives of young people. Case studies of other libraries are key to support the idea of using fanfiction. The literature review explores the viability of fanfiction as a teaching tool to promote reading and writing. It is hoped that this study will inspire the development of a pilot program surrounding the creation and analysis of fanfiction as an alternative method to engage reluctant readers.
