I’m not going to get into politics on here, but I thought this could be used in an educational way. I have posted about wordle before. It is a great program that will take a bunch of words- in this case McCain and Obama’s speeches- and create a visual. The top 125 words used in each speech are listed. The more often a word is used, the larger that word will be. I found it very interesting when looking at each candidate and the words they repeatedly used. This might be a great piece for middle or high school students (or anyone else) to discuss. If you would like for a larger version, I do have a large copy that I would be willing to email out, just leave a comment.
