The evolution of Chinese character forms is from complexity to simplicity. It is in line with the needs of Chinese language usage. In the process of the development of the Chinese characters, the method of pseudo-borrowing was adopted to write the language. In the national unification of the script, some policies to simplify the Chinese characters were adopted, which is conducive to the use and spread of the Chinese language. However, it also certainly hinders the teaching of the classical Chinese. This thesis combines Mr. Qiu Xigui's Chinese Writing and the actual situation of teaching literary texts in junior high school, and puts forward the "Traceable Character Creation" and "Word Decomposition Teaching Method", which seeks to provide teachers with teaching inspiration and enable students to learn through fun. Contemporary Chinese language teachers need to improve their own cultivation and balance their duties of imparting knowledge and inculcating Chinese culture.
