Teaching material is a vital resource of language input, while the evaluation of teaching material is of great importance for both teachers and students.  This paper aims at evaluating of the New Senior English for China Students’ Book 1. Due to personal limited effort this paper just focuses on the writing part. The author will use the target needs analysis of Hutchinson & Waters to serve as analysis base, and will take the characteristics of New Senior English for China Students’ Book 1 as the subjective analysis and the requirements of teaching syllabus as objective analysis. At last, the paper tries to present some personal opinions based on the results of evaluation.
