The Introduction of Guiding-Thinking and Inquiring Teaching Method involving Eight Links to a Normal English Class

Lili LIU


In recent years, the Curriculum Revolution has been ardently carried out in all levels of schools in China. According to the new English curriculum ( The Ministry of Education, 2003). designed for high schools, English teaching should involve helping students develop a certain level of comprehensive language competence and the ability to use language for real communication. Under this circumstance, and considering the actual teaching situation, the school that I take a temporary post has modified the Guiding-Thinking and Inquiring Teaching Method (Jinchi Li, 2001 ).involving eight links during a whole class. In this paper, I will interpret the basic requirements of this teaching method, therefore, it can have some enlightenment on other similar schools that teach students whose English competences required are comparatively low. And some suggestions will be put forward aimed at improving this typical teaching model.
