Abstract
It is of great significance for a college English teacher to cultivate critical thinking on campus, and by theoretical study, reading is found to be an effective way to do it. In this paper, based on the research findings, a series of English reading activities were organized and made part of the students’ extra-curriculum practice, which gradually prepared them for an English reading contest at the provincial or even the national level. The results have proved that our project was very productive in terms of raising the students’ awareness of critical thinking and of ways to cultivate it.
