While I love Wordles and think they are really cool when analyzing large pieces of work and getting an idea for themes, this lesson confused me. I think it is a good supplementary material but I don't see how it could really help when trying to revise a paper. This project seemed to focus on the Wordle instead of the writing and the actual revision process. I see how it can be used to analyze the unity of a piece but I don't know...I guess I'm just not seeing the larger picture of using a Wordle in context with papers. I really liked Rachel's idea of using it in vocabulary lessons and having the students try to come up with the word from the definition turned into a Wordle so let me know if you came up with any other ideas!
