Using Wordle in Social Studies

Wordle is an amazing tool that I have wanted to use in my 9th grade World Studies class this year. However, due to some unexpected power outages and the busy schedule of an intern teacher, I am just getting around to implementing its use. I find they are really useful to pull from a student reaction to a bell ringer question or prompt. I have a few example below.


Here is an example of my first attempt. Although I did not show this to my students, this is their analysis of what a quote from the philosopher Confucius meant to them. The quote was:

“By three methods we may learn wisdom: First, by reflection, which is noblest; Second, by imitation, which is easiest; and third by experience, which is the bitterest.”  – Confucius


Here two different class periods, and their responses to “Bell Ringer: Define religion”
