The experimental technique was recognized based on establishing open educational communication between the teacher and pupils at the lesson, where primacy and value of the painting worked as a visual image. The research represented the comparative analysis of children’s texts. The results were as follows: first,&nbsp; comparison of text drafts and final versions describing the painting; second, third, analysis of pupils’ worksheets for comparing two paintings; fourth,&nbsp; analysis of individual memos. The research concluded that the “barrier” technique, where pupils should respond on already prepared text, resulted in less detailed statements with fewer figurative expressions, and also increased the similarity of the texts, that was “leveling up” of perception and vision of the painting by children. “Barrier-free” technique ran effectively because it helped children build educational and personal communication.</p> Svetlana I.

An essential characteristic of social maturity was meta-cognitive understanding, in which children were capable of social thinking and accepting the opinion and the position of others and demonstrating pro-social actions. The research examined three types of educational environments as <em>“open,” “closed,” </em>and <em>“mixed.”</em> Groups of children of different types of the educational environment were determined by the presence or absence of a significant criterion - a unique communicative space organized by the teacher - <em>open</em> or <em>closed</em>. It revealed the results of twenty-five children who studied in three types of educational environments using the three different techniques like “Pictures,” “Incomplete stories,” and “Clarity.” It showed significant differences in the data on indicators of children's social cognition: semantic perception of a problem situation - perceptual aspect; proposed actions reflecting a strategy for resolving a problem situation - the behavioral aspect, and child's assessment of character behavior is an evaluation aspect. The research also displayed that the most effective type was an <em>"open educational environment"</em> for developing the social cognition of children.</p> Helen D.

Without these essential aspects, intercultural communication cannot be efficient. The high interest in foreign language learning contributed to the search for the most effective ways of teaching it.&nbsp; The concepts and theories appeared at the turn of two centuries in Russia, remaining relevant today. They became the essential basis for further research on foreign language teaching in the framework of the dialogue of cultures. The cultural idea is focused on learning both the Language and culture. Safonova (1993), developed a socio-cultural approach to teaching a foreign language as a specialty. She has proved the necessity of integration of the culture of the country being studied into the educational process. ? methodical model of foreign language teaching was proposed as a basis for developing the bicultural personality of students.</p> Marina N.

As a result, competencies became the subject of research in various sciences. About five hundred dissertations on the phenomenon of skill were published in Russia. The emergence of new areas of training and specialties necessitated the justification of new competencies and, thus, contributed to the emergence of new scientific research. The trend created the conditions for summing up and systematizing some results. The research work examines the phenomenon of competency on the scale of different branches of scientific knowledge. The authors of the current research interpret the phenomenon in the context of pedagogical hermeneutics and such aspects as the target audience, the form of competency, its content, and actualization. The scholars tried to describe the quality of the educational process for the formation and development of competencies, and they gave an attempt to propose some approaches classifying the diversity of competency types.</p> Veronika M.

Nizkodubov ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sat, 01 Aug 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Choosing appropriate forms, methods, and study aids <p style="text-align: justify;">The article represented the problem of choice and application of pedagogically valid forms, means, and methods of education. The ability to choose enables a teacher to take the initiative, develop and adopt a curriculum, teaching, and upbringing methods within the framework of an academic subject, a course, or a discipline. It ensures teaching the subject at a high professional level, following the approved curriculum, application of pedagogically valid and proper forms, and educational methods. The author analyzed the sequence of methods and techniques combinations in the course of making a choice, which is based on understanding their applicability in the educational process. The authors outlined the possibilities of using the problem study method to form the activity of a child's personality. A comparative analysis of teaching methods was presented, and the main criteria for their selection were given. The methods capabilities were assessed, using the approach of the students' educational skills in choosing instructional methods, including a preliminary study of the willingness level for search and research activities. The combination of techniques allows us to take into account the specifics of the content of the educational material and helps students reveal their educational and cognitive abilities.</p> Olga L.

For this purpose, the Humanitarian School within the Philological Department of Biysk Pedagogical State University named after V. M. Shukshin, was organized. The identified educational effects showed the event potential of the Humanitarian School. Based on the empirical analysis, the definition of “educational event” was formed. Specific aspects of the pedagogical activity, on which educational event had to influence, were identified as subjectness, sense-value attitudes, the meaning of pedagogical activity, personal action, and self-reflection over pedagogical activity. Conditions for pedagogical activity formation in student training were specified: involvement in planning, initiation by the teacher of their actions, selection of participation position inactivity, and self-reflection over their pedagogical activity. The article proved the assumption that educational events improve the quality of student training for pedagogical activity.</p> Natal’ya Volkova, Zoya Fedorinova ##submission.copyrightStatement## Sat, 01 Aug 2020 00:00:00 +0000 Foreign language teaching within inclusive education: innovations and prospects <p style="text-align: justify;">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.</p> Liubov A.
