Abstract
EAP can also be called academic English. EAP reading materials are important tools to cultivate and improve students’ reading ability as well as a model to improve students’ academic communication ability. Relevant documents indicate that the current EAP, namely the academic English reading material, has many problems and deficiencies. However, EAP reading materials with good quality can effectively compensate for the lack of EAP teaching experience of college teachers, help teachers organize the classroom teaching well; it can also improve the students’ English reading interest and English communication ability in their academic field so that it can improve students’ comprehensive academic ability to the full extent. This paper studies the common deficiencies of Chinese EAP materials and analyzes it based on the relevant text editing theory and reading studies and makes in-depth investigation for the selection of EAP reading materials based on Schema Theory.
