Tagxedo

August 14, 2010

I made this using Tagxedo.  One of the biggest differences from Wordle is that you really need a good amount of words if you are using a shape.  I copied one of my posts, not enough.  So added another post and this was the product. It is Ok, but could use more.  My thought about using this site was to have my students upload a picture of theirself ,select a shape that represents them or they could just use their name.  Then, after having them compile lists that describe them, create a Tagxedo.

Differentiation: Use  a writing piece, ie. “All About Me as a Reader/Writer”, categorical lists, interview questions.  Also, their is an incentive, the more detailed the image the more words they have to use.  I could even use a rubric with regards to word count, more interesting words, synonyms etc.  This could be a winner.
