How I Use It
I have used this in many ways: * biographical projects * tool to display unit vocabulary * cut and paste text to show theme (Romeo and Juliet, Gettysburg Address are two I have used.) * self-assessment - students cut and paste their own writing to search for overused words.
My Take
Wordle gives students a way to show theme or other high frequency words in a visual way. I like the flexibility this tool allows and the variety of ways this tool can be used. The one thing I don't like is the data is not searchable.
