This assignment has two components:

  • Write a comparison/contrast paper that includes links to textual, visual, and audio primary sources.  Post the paper to your wiki page.
  • Create a Wordle word cloud based on the text from one or more of the primary sources you used as a reference or as an example.  Be sure to choose a primary source that will provide a meaningful word cloud.  Post the word cloud to your wiki page along with an analysis of possible meanings that can be derived from the number of times words were used within the text(s) you chose.


This is an example of a word cloud created in Wordle (www.wordle.net):
