OK, Tuesday morning, I will be bringing my class to order for “20th Century British History”, and in looking to experiment with some of those ideas for using online tools, and having recently found Wordle (I know, a bit late in the day), I thought this had a great potential for turning some great wordy documents into something interesting for use in PowerPoint slides, and seeing what the key themes are running through a document! This Worlde is taken from the text of Chapter 4 of Mary Wollstonecraft’s A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. I wonder what it would look like with the full text (they’re available as separate chapters here), and it’s interesting to see the words removed from context – so we don’t know if the chapter is positive or negative to specific aspects of women’s behaviour… to which we’ll need to go back to the original!
I’m suspecting, as women’s rights are still such a key issue, and this is such a seminal text, there’s plenty on YouTube, so let’s go random with the first entry, and see where it takes you from there!
