College English Writing Teaching Design Based on Constructivist Mode


Constructivist theory, a key branch of cognitive psychology, is universally recognized as the theoretical basis for innovating traditional teaching. This paper attempts to apply constructivism to writing education, which will be used to help guide writing teaching design and class construction, in order to explore and discover a proper and student-tailored writing class teaching mode.
