Genre-based teaching approach is based on genre analysis, which applies the theory of genre and genre analysis to the classroom, and develops teaching activities revolving around the schematic structure of a text. This paper constructed an experiment based on the graduate English reading courses of China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) and graduate English self-access learning system. The experiment selected two groups of non-English majors in China University of Geosciences (Wuhan) Grade 14 on postgraduate reading course, within 62 people for each group. The whole experiment lasted for a semester, implementing traditional teaching approach to the control group while genre-based teaching approach to the experimental group. Through analyzing the pretest and posttest data, it proves that genre-based teaching approach is superior to traditional teaching approach.
