So, last night after President Obama delivered his nomination acceptance speech at the 2012 Democratic National Convention, I did a quick search and located the transcripts for his prepared remarks and those for the speech Romney gave the week before at the Republication National Convention. I plugged the transcripts into Wordle verbatim and the created two separate word clouds, using the same colors and font. Keep in mind, Wordle automatically eliminates articles from the word cloud.
If you'd like to use these word clouds for discussion with your students, you might find this handy Google Doc convenient. It is shared with a CC-BY (Michelle Pacansky-Brock) license.
What do these reveal to you?
