Abstract
Writing is an essential skill in language learning which currently features learners- centeredness and self-learning competence. Cultivation of learners' autonomy in writing is supposed to help learners to become a self-developing life-long learners with sustainable writing ability. Based on the critical role strategies play in fostering learners' autonomy, the present paper offers a strategies-based instruction (SBI) which explicitly embeds learning strategies into normal writing teaching through strategy training to promote learners' autonomy in writing. The findings show that strategy training has greatly inspired learners' strategy awareness in the process of writing and bettered their writing quality which will help improve their autonomous writing in their future work and life.
