Abstract

Lack of understanding of the text structure is the major problem in English reading teaching in junior high school and senior high school at present. High school English teaching is not only for the college entrance examination, but also to cultivate students' ability of listening, speaking, reading and writing. Because traditional teaching focuses on the interpretation and grammar of words. Teachers help students understand the text by explaining the text word for word, combing the language points and grammatical phenomena of the text, and practicing the words and phrases repeatedly, traditional teaching focuses on the explanation of words and syntax, there is lack of macro-processing of chapters in reading teaching, which restricts students’ reading comprehension level. Text structure, as an important internal feature of the text, plays a positive role in improving the correctness and efficiency of reading comprehension. Adopting correct reading teaching strategies and imparting text structure knowledge can greatly improve the efficiency of reading teaching in the long run.
