dc.description.abstractThis study focuses on enhancing language skills in the areas of reading and writing through the implementation of fan-fiction in a group of higher education students from the University of Puerto Rico, Mayaguez campus. To assess participants’ already existing habits and their consideration on how effective those habits were in the development of reading and writing skills a pre and post questionnaire was administered. Whether or not participants found the use of fan-fiction to be a constituent in how they practice reading and writing would be determined by their performance in three research units designed for them to explore the possibilities of fan-fiction as a genre for language learning.en_US

Para evaluar los hábitos pre-existentes en los participantes y como ellos consideran la efectividad de esos hábitos en el desarrollo de destrezas en las áreas de énfasis, se administro un pre y pos cuestionario.
