On the Basis of Literature to Build a Highway of SLW

Yuanfei YAO, Lin PENG, Dongxu TU


Literature appears in different media. Making full use of these media in teaching will help to improve the rate of second language acquisition. This paper focuses on a three-month experiment in two classes of an agricultural secondary vocational school in Bazhong, Sichuan Province. One class adopts traditional English teaching and the other class does English literature as the main teaching mode. Finally, through SPSS data analysis, the differences in English writing performance between the experimental class and the control class, the differences in the frequency of writing strategies used by the experimental class before and after the experiment, and the different effects of literature as the main teaching medium on the improvement of students’ English writing performance are obtained, with a view to providing valuable information for the second language writing teaching and related research.
