Reading word clouds
I´ve used the technology called "word clouds" for making this ws. The words are chosen randomly from a piece of text but they make perfect sense if you try to put them into a coherent text. Reading this "cloud" trains pupils´ regard to details, makes them be careful and, above all, it is great fun. Key added.
