Students will create “word clouds” using excerpts of letters and speeches by famous women. Students may use the Internet and visit the free website http://www.wordle.net to evaluate text in a unique way. Afterwards, students discuss their findings. In word clouds, those words that appear most frequently are given greater prominence, allowing the reader or student to draw conclusions on dominance of themes in a document, or the tone the author intends in the writing. The prominence of specific words can help students predict or reflect on the primary focus of any given document
