In order to achieve the teaching goal of improving thinking quality in senior high school English reading class, based on the theoretical basis of the key competences of the English subject, the author analyzes the unfavorable factors existing in the current reading class, and clarifies the importance of thinking quality in the reading class. The cultivation of thinking quality is not only limited to the change in teaching activities, but also to cultivate students' thinking skills from the three dimensions of “logical, critical and innovative”. The teaching design is based on the teaching material, creates a communicative context, and uses interlocking activities to guide students' innovative thinking. What’s more, it effectively internalizes and outputs the knowledge, and further optimizes the teaching effect.
