RUBRIC For Word Cloud:
Word Cloud is a visual presentation of words on a chosen topic/theme/person/situation. “If you want a stunning visualization format to highlight important textual data points, using a word cloud can make dull data sizzle and immediately convey crucial information…If you’ve ever looked at a jumble of disparate words that seem to have no correlation until you investigate further, you’ve seen a word cloud. These are powerful tools across myriad industries, from art to science…A word cloud is a collection, or cluster, of words depicted in different sizes. The bigger and bolder the word appears, the more often it’s mentioned within a given text and the more important it is.” (https://boostlabs.com/blog/what-are-word-clouds-value-simple-visualizations/)
CREATE a WORD CLOUD in the below free website on a chosen topic/event/person from the time period of your history syllabus, Post 1865 US History. The word cloud MUST be no less than 20 words. After you create the Word Cloud save the image on your computer or take a screen shot and attach it in the assignment tab. REMEMBER to title your JPEG or PDF image on the theme/event/person of your Word Cloud. You can also write the title in the assignment box and then attach your jpeg.
Your Word Cloud will be of ten points:
5 points for the relevancy of the words used in relation to the chosen historical event/person
5 points for the story you try to convey through the word cloud.
