This paper explores the practical effects of the interactive reading teaching by taking the empirical study in two sophomore classes in the English department of College of Humanities & Sciences of Northeast Normal University. Each class has 32 subjects respectively. The two classes were taught by the same teacher. The experiment lasted the entire semester. The only difference is that the experimental class is taught by the interactive approach, while the control class is instructed by the traditional teaching model. Through the experiment, it is concluded that the interactive approach of reading teaching can enhance the learning motivation and interests of the students. It can help the students develop good reading habits, grasp reading strategies and improve their reading ability. The interactive approach advocates the collaborative, and interactive learning which enhances their overall abilities in using English language.
