Taking the discourse learning of the new senior high school English textbook published by the People’s Education Press as an example, combined with the “six-dimensional guidance” deep reading strategy, and through the six-skill training strategies of “memory skill training, understanding skill training, application skill training, analytical skill training, evaluation skill training, creative skill training,” this paper aims to cultivate students’ thinking profundity, logic, flexibility, sensitivity, criticality, and originality. It also promotes the real implementation of senior high school English deep reading that points to the cultivation of thinking quality in classroom teaching, and realizes the transformation from “conventional reading” to “deep reading” that reflects the core literacy of the discipline.
