With the fulfillment of the revision of the English Curriculum Standard for Senior High Schools, the new English Curriculum Standard for Senior High Schools(2017 edition), with respect to the revised guiding ideology, basic principles or main contents, embodies that English textbooks are changing from “teachers-oriented teaching materials” to “students-oriented teaching materials”, which makes learning-material orientation become an inevitable trend in the reform of English textbooks. Currently, this trend is certainly consistent with the background of learning society, in which more emphasis will be laid on the learning of students. Consequently, this research mainly focuses on the theory of learning materials and studies its concept, current situation, and effective approaches to promote learning materials of English textbooks through case studies, interviews, and surveys combined with the English curriculum standards of ordinary senior high schools in order to enhance the in-depth understanding of learning materials from the perspective of the new English curriculum standards of senior high schools.
