The POA Application in the Teaching of Chinese Writing as a Foreign Language

Jie SHI, Weijia WANG


The old style of traditional teaching mode is to take “text as the core”. A whole new teaching approach was put forward by a famous professor and the approach is named as production oriented approach (POA), which is pulling people’s attention on both “input” and “production”. From the essence of these two elements, we know that it is for sure the innovation and development of traditional teaching mode is great. Also, there is also a disjointed situation between learning and using during the teaching. Based on the POA, this paper selects lesson 25 “developing Chinese intermediate Writing II” as an example, expects to explore the effective way of production so as to provide a series of reference for the subsequent writing teaching design from three aspects including driving, facilitating and evaluating.
