Using Wordle to check your writing

I began using Wordle in class as a means to have students practice recognizing central themes and important ideas in their reading. I have since used Wordle to help students examine their own writing to see if the main points they tell me their work is about actually shows up in the language they use in their writing.

In my own blogging, I thought it would be good to apply a Wordle check. Below is the result of that check.

Wordle: The Art of Education 12/20/2010

I am happy to see "school", "students", and "leaders" appear as major themes.

What would your writing's Wordle look like?
