Research of College English Newspaper Reading Teaching Based on the Theory of Implicit Evaluation

Zhipeng LIU


Traditional teaching of the English Newspaper reading courses emphasizes the transmission of knowledge and culture, and pays too much attention to the analysis of discourse structures, but ignore the interpretation of the ideology and viewpoints implied in the newspaper discourse. Through the analysis of language resources in China Daily and the Wall Street Journal, we find that there are a lot of implicit evaluation resources in newspapers and periodicals, which indirectly convey the attitudes and opinions of newspaper reporters. Therefore, exploring the implicit evaluation resources in the  newspapers in the teaching process is of great significance to cultivate students’ critical thinking ability and promote the teaching of optional reading courses of English newspapers.
