Nowadays, there is an increasing awareness of the upset situation concerning English writing among college English teachers. More and more teachers come to expose themselves to various approaches to teaching writing in order to remedy the unsatisfying teaching situation. Process and product approaches are most commonly used in English writing teaching. But with product approach, composing process skills are given relatively small role and to a certain degree students‟ motivation and interests remain undeveloped, while when applying process approach to teach writing, more and more teachers realize the disadvantages of this so-called “enabling” approach. Based on the study of interrelationship between rhetoric and writing, the purpose of this paper is finding an effective model of writing instruction for students from rhetorical perspective, and through an experiment of composition writing, testing the feasibility of rhetorical model in writing action.
