Wen Qiufang’s Production-Oriented Approach is a linguistic theory emphasizing the students’ output practice. Writing is a task that requires the students to output what they have learned and produce a composition; therefore, Production-Oriented Approach is very appropriate to be applied in writing teaching. With drive of the writing production task, the students’ all-around motivations for learning can be aroused, and they are bound to produce satisfactory writings.
