Writing - Fan Fiction
According to the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), writing fan fiction pushes students to think more deeply about a book or story they have read as they consider character dynamics and motives, plot techniques, and the role of setting and mood. It provides scaffolded support for engaging in the creative process by providing students with established characters and settings as the basis for their own fictional work. Finally, writing fan fiction is a highly motivating experience, even for the most reluctant writers, as students sharpen their literacy skills by modeling their work after a piece they admire and enjoy.
