Writing Nook

 

Calling all young authors!  Do you have an interest in writing a wide variety of fiction, non- fiction and poetic texts?   You are warmly invited to join with your CurrClick friends for an exciting thirteen week literary and composition adventure.  We will have a great time exploring the creation of stories with engaging leads, detailed middles and fulfilling conclusions, selecting writing samples for a specific audience, and participating in all stages of the writing process.  With a focus on developing a flow in our writing, we will engage in activities which promote sentence fluency, enhance word choice, and ensure consistent voice.  We will have so much fun with the analysis and construction of writing pieces which are narrative, expository, descriptive and persuasive in nature.  The Writing Nook is the perfect spot for growing skills of authorship while developing an appreciation for an array of literary styles!

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
