Addressing the major problems in current English Writing course in China, the study puts forward “condensation-expansion” and “AB double Texts” based on PAD Class Teaching Model, which revolutionized the traditional English writing teaching. The study decodes model essays by splitting, locating keywords and abstracting; and encodes the writing by brainstorming, lexical clustering and extended writing after analyzing the title and directions. Text A is used to demonstrate by teachers and Text B is used to practice by learners. The teaching practices from 2019 till now show that the “condensation-expansion” and “AB Double Texts” based on PAD Class teaching model can effectively improve the learners’ writing ability, cultivate learners’ critical thinking, expressive and cooperative ability.
