Abstract:

In senior high school English teaching, reading is the main content and also one of the ways for students to improve their comprehensive English ability. The main teaching task of teachers is to strengthen English reading teaching and improve students’ reading ability in senior high school. However, the traditional reading teaching pays too much attention to vocabulary grammar and ignores the whole teaching of the text. 
Discourse analysis is a process based on discourse that makes language produce meaning in a text. The application of discourse analysis theory in English teaching is a top-down change to the traditional English teaching. Discourse analysis should include the training of context analysis, the analysis of discourse structure and the analysis of sentence coherence and so on. In the process of reading, it is the direction of discourse analysis that readers should understand the author’s language. In order to understand the author’s language, readers should not only analyze the structure and theme of the article in combination with the overall context of the article, but also have enough knowledge reserves and rich language knowledge.
Based on the concept of the English Curriculum Standards for Ordinary Senior Middle Schools, this paper discusses how to guide students to grasp the theme, content, stylistic features and linguistic features of a text and explore the thematic meaning based on the theory of discourse analysis, taking the discourse of Reading and Thinking as an example: Chinese Writing System: connecting the past and the present (From Senior One English Compulsory Course 1 Unit 5 Language Around The World).
