  22. When creating wordles it is best to have a document or webpage where there are a lot of words that can be used to make the wordle. If you find a website, such as wikipedia, where there is extensive explanation, select the portion of the text that you want to paste into wordle. If you are using a document, make sure it's a journal or lab report where there is a lot of information. Again, copy and paste the information into Wordle. Once the wordle is generated make sure that both the Wordle website and original document where the information was collected is cited when incorporating the wordle into a SMART Notebook.
