1 Using Wordle to Create Character Word Clouds What is Wordle? Wordle is a graphic representation of the most frequently used words or most important words in a speech, a poem, a book, a historical document or from your thoughts. Words that you want emphasized would be input several times. To keep words or phrases together, use a tilde ~ between the words. One Web 2.0 tool you can use to create word clouds is Wordle. There are now additional online tools you can use as well. Wordle allows you to change the layout and color as well as print or post your Wordle to the online gallery. You can use this Web 2.0 tool for many class assignments.

9 Examples of Assignments Using Wordle: Creating Word Clouds in Wordle To Kill A Mockingbird Characterization Assignment Created by Elizabeth Manthei Because Harper Lee does such an excellent job of characterization in her novel, your assignment is to choose one of the main characters and examine more in depth who this person is and how Lee characterizes them. In doing so, look for details about what the character says and does, what others say about them, and make inferences of your own about what character traits the character has. Choose one of the assignments below to accomplish this task of a close examination of a character. Option 1: Word Picture using Wordle: Create a Wordle document following the guidelines below. When you are finished, upload it at the designated Moodle forum on this week s page. Choose a character from chapters 10-14: Calpurnia, Aunt Alexandra, Scout, Jem, or Atticus Write their name at least 5 times into the Wordle document (go to Wordle.net) Find three passages that highlight this character in some way: Something they say Something they do Something said about them A description of them from Scout the narrator Paste these into the Wordle document with the names above. Now, think of 10 words of your own to describe this character, either nouns (Miss Maudie is a gardener ) or adjectives (Maudie is independent ), which really get at who they are at their core. Paste them into Wordle, repeating each one as often as you wish for the desired emphasis you wish. Customize your Wordle piece however you wish for the desired effect. When you are done, take a screen shot of the Wordle and upload it to Moodle for sharing later. (Be prepared to point out the three passages you chose to highlight this character when sharing your Wordle with the class.) 9 P a g e

10 Assignment Summary from Julie, an English in Nebraska. In my classroom, students use Wordles to evaluate literature. Recently my 9th graders used Wordles to understand tone shift. Students read the short story "The Sniper" by Liam O'Flaherty, and then using a collaborative Google Spreadsheet, shared the one word that they felt best represented the attitude of the sniper at the beginning of the story and the one word they felt best represented the sniper's attitude at the end of the story. I created Wordles from the tone words submitted by students. See the Wordles below: 1st Block - beginning and ending tone word Wordles 2nd Block - beginning and ending tone word Wordles 10 P a g e

11 Assignment Summary from Julie, an English in Nebraska. Last year, students in my classes picked out passages from the novel To Kill a Mockingbird that they felt most represented a major theme in the novel. Students typed in the text of the paragraph or passage into Wordle, and then they evaluated how the Wordle represented a major theme. I created a Wordle from one of the most famous passages in To Kill a Mockingbird below. Maybe you can recognize it. I also used Wordle to create a word cloud of the novels that are required 9th grade reads in my school district. I then uploaded the image, added one of my favorite quotes about reading, and bought the poster from Big Huge Labs. 11 P a g e

12 Preparing Assignments Prior to having students create a Wordle, some preparation must be completed. You might create an assignment sheet asking the students to create a Word document. Having the text in Word will allow the student to copy and paste into Wordle, which will save time if the Wordle needs to be restarted. Student Assignment: Character Traits Input the following information in a Word document. You will not need to format the document. 1. Type the title of a book. 2. Type the author of the book. 3. Type the setting for the book s story. 4. Type a character s name from the book. Type the character s name approximately 10 more times. The more times a word is typed, the more important Wordle treats the word. The more important words will appear larger. 5. Identify at least five traits of the character. Type each trait two or three times. 6. Type names of other characters about three or four times each. 7. Save your document for use in Wordle. 12 P a g e
