I first mentioned Wordle on this blog back in June. Mrs. Nicholson wrote to me this week and told me about how she used it in her classroom. I think this is a wonderful project, especially if you have a class that needs some self esteem work. The students each created a wordle answering “What words do you use to describe yourself?” Mrs. Nicholson used the wordles and pictures of the students to create this video using photostory.
I could see this same activity working well for a biography unit. Have the students research a person and write a description in Wordle, then pair it with a photo. Thanks to Mrs. Nicholson for sharing her wonderful idea!!
