Yichang Huang, Ye Wang, and Feng Ye
Abstract—Nowadays, the cultivation of students' reading ability has become one of the essential aspects in College English Teaching, in which the methodological guidance to help students grasp effectively the key words of articles emerges particularly as the significant point in classroom interactivity. As the visualization mechanism analyzing and researching the English text quickly, Word Cloud has been put forth as English teachers’ new tool in reading training. This thesis tends to present a dynamically interactive system of Word Cloud Visualization based on the technique of D3 and JQuery in the field of Computer Science, and attempts to elaborate its advantages, such as the comfortable interface and the prominent key points with several examples of recent US presidential inaugural speeches as well as the test analysis of the CET 4.

Index Terms—College English teaching, D3, visualization, word cloud.
