Subtraction Poetry

This is an interesting idea I came across earlier in the year. Thank you to Austin Kleon, a writer and artist who lives in Texas, for the idea. The idea of subtraction poetry involves taking words away in order for the information to take a new form.
Using a Mac computer with Preview, take a piece of informational text in pdf, annotate to strike through the unwanted words and highlight the final product. How might you or your students use this?
