Foreign language teaching within inclusive education: innovations and prospects
Keywords:disabilities, inclusive education, personality, special needs, teaching model
Currently, Russian professors were facing crucial demands because of a new, urgent condition to pursue their work. Until recently, these professors were used to working within familiar surroundings and sharing knowledge with students of traditional classes, but now, they are expected to move beyond that and function on a different level, which demands special skills and methods of working in an inclusive class. The purpose of this article was to throw light on the various aspects of inclusion that was supposed to be essential for the further development of inclusive education in Russia. The scientific issues in this field get more and more support and interest in almost all countries around the world. The research presented some theoretical and practical workouts of Russian professors within inclusive classes. The data were collected, analyzed, and overflowed into conclusions that highlight the idea of possible and fruitful coeducation of students with disabilities in a typical education process. However, as the survey showed, it is not an easy task, and the variety of issues should be taken into consideration.
