Wordle.net

This is a great tool for anyone that uses writing within their class.  Have your students analyze their essay/paper/assignment through wordle.  What the site does is create a wordmap of the work.  The more a word is used, the larger it is.  The example given here is LATTC’s accreditation self-study.  It’s a fun way to look at piece of work.  On my sample political science site you can see wordmaps of Obama’s and McCain’s acceptance speeches from last year.
