This slideshow explores the uses of Many Eyes as a classroom teaching and analysis tool. In particular, it looks at how students at St. Edward's University in Rhetorical Criticism analyze speech texts using visualization tools available on Many Eyes. Tag Clouds, Wordles, and Word Trees are combined to determine word frequencies and clusters. These findings are used to create a rhetorical analysis based upon Kenneth Burke's Cluster Criticism.
