This visual aid was created with the website Wordle. The site doesn't have a download feature, but you can copy-and-paste your Wordle to Adobe Acrobat legally. This is what I have done.
Teachers are using Wordle more and more in the classroom to engage students in active thinking. This one simply is the text of Martin Luther King, Jr's "I Have a Dream" speech.
This visual aid works well in a Social Studies classroom, but it is especially effective in an English classroom. You can show students how orators use repetition in rhetoric to magnify important pieces in a speech.
Or it can be used more simply: the visual aid might also make a good lesson activator, as the more common words in the speech are made with larger text. Students can understand which words appear more often and/or were emphasized.
If anything, you can print this and use it as neat word art in your classroom.
