Abstract
In order to improve the college students’ writing ability, this paper puts forward a new teaching model which combines the discourse analysis-based reading with writing. To test the effect of this new teaching model, the writer carried out an experiment in the Linyi University. The college students involved in this study are non-English majors and come from two natural classes, and one of them is the experimental group in which the new teaching model was adopted, the other is the controlled group in which the traditional teaching model was used. By analyzing the writing marks in the pretest and posttest after experiment, we found that students in each class made less mistakes than before at the level of vocabulary, grammar and discourse, but students in the EG made more achievements than those in the CG, especially at the level of discourse. The the results of posttest verified the effectiveness and feasibility of the new teaching model.
