Hayes, Sandy, Ed.
Voices from the Middle, v16 n2 p66-68 Dec 2008
With the misleading descriptor of "toy for generating word clouds," Wordle can be a powerful classroom tool, says Hayes. She outlines how its use for reading skills (predicting, summarizing, and comparing) and writing skills (prewriting, revising, generating poetry, expanding multimodal literacies) can engage students and develop creative and critical thinking. (Contains 3 figures.)
