The ideological-political education within the framework of foreign language instruction underscores the development of students’ competencies and ethical dispositions. Within the Production-Oriented Approach (POA), there is an emphasis on integrating learning with practical application, thereby highlighting the enhancement of students’ applied skills. The synergistic fusion of ideological-political education and POA incorporates value inculcation, knowledge dissemination, and capacity building, ultimately contributing to the cultivation of English professionals with a composite perspective blending Chinese ethos and international outlook. This study, guided by POA and employing the Comprehensive English course for English majors as a conduit, addresses classroom pedagogy across five dimensions: teaching content, teaching objectives, procedural steps, specific implementation, and pedagogical assessment. Embracing the “motivating, enabling, and assessing” stages advocated by POA, it seeks to delineate an implementation pathway that seamlessly integrates explicit language instruction with implicit ideological-political education, thereby optimizing the efficacy of the course’s pedagogical framework.
