For the sake of further exploring the solution to the “separation of learning and using” in senior high school English vocabulary teaching, based on the theoretical basis of the Production-oriented Approach (POA), the current situation is analyzed, which points out the “monotonous” problems in traditional teaching. According to the definition of POA, the author puts forward a new vocabulary teaching model. The exploration of this model shows that adopting a new form of “motivating-enabling-assessing”, can mobilize students' learning initiative, closely integrate input and production, and improve the efficiency of students' direct conversion of receptive knowledge into application ability driven by production.
