The cultivation of students’ thinking quality is an important part of the cultivation of students’ key competences, which reflects students’ cognitive ability and thinking level in logic, criticism, innovation and other aspects. In English teaching, reading is a process of learning language knowledge, mastering language skills, cultivating cultural consciousness and developing thinking quality. Therefore, reading teaching is the most direct and effective way to cultivate students’ thinking quality. Junior high school students already have some independent thinking ability, so teachers should attach importance to develop students’ thinking ability in English reading teaching. This paper analyzes how to cultivate students’ thinking quality in junior high school English reading teaching from three perspectives of logical, critical and innovative thinking, and puts forward some classroom teaching strategies to optimize English reading teaching, give play to the educational value of English language subject and cultivate students’ English thinking.
