More Wordle info:

  • Wordles can be printed or saved as screenshots.
  • The larger the word in a wordle, the more often it was present in the text.  This can be used to clearly see themes and ideas present in a text to compare two or more texts, or to use as a revision tool.
  • If copying text from the internet, be sure to provide the citation.
  • If copying text from the internet, it is handy to use the tab function of Internet Explorer--have your text site open, and Wordle open on another tab.  This is especially handy for Wordle-ing more than one text.

Here is a link to a Wordle of the text on this page: How to Wordle
