Successful completion of the week of the educational program in the field of foreign language teacher training

A foreign language as a subject has great potential in terms of developing learners' abilities for general and logical action and problem solving. To activate the creative abilities of students, it is necessary to improve the types and forms of learning activities (thematic) weeks, contests, quizzes, games, project activities, role-playing games, etc.). This will help to consolidate the material passed at the level of imaginative thinking.

The week of the educational program provides for the participation of a wide number of students and includes a complex of activities, different in form and content, which are held during a certain period of time and are aimed at implementing the objectives of an integrated approach to the development, upbringing, and education of students by means of a foreign language.

Various types of mass extracurricular activities contribute to the development of linguistic and socio-cultural competence, the formation of personal qualities of students, including the development of creative abilities, the formation of personal responsibility for the results of work.

The week of the educational program in the direction of training of foreign language teachers is held annually in February according to the preliminary prepared program. The topics should be interesting, informative, and accessible, related to the educational material and correspond to the age characteristics and level of their language training.

A new and interesting event this year was the "Pilot Project on Local Government", in which 1-3 year students directly participated. The purpose of student self-governance is, on the one hand, that students become involved in the existing pyramids of relationships, on the other hand, that they gain personal experience of democratic relationships and forms of awareness of them. From 9.00 to 12.00 students of the Department of Philology were in the role of administration and teachers of the university. Two meetings with the 1st-2nd year students as well as open classes with the 3rd year students were included in the program of Self-Government Day.

The advantage of using interactive lectures in the learning process is that the acquired knowledge and skills are deeper; more systematized, better remembered and more easily updated, and increased interest in the content of the subject. So on February 20, Candidate of Pedagogical Sciences, Associate Professor M.I. Kudritskaya held an open, interactive lecture on "Criteria for evaluation of the final research project. During the lecture, 3rd year students worked in groups, each of which presented their creatively prepared answer to the question posed. During the defense students were able to show not only active participation in educational activities, but also the ability to work in teams. The basis of professionalism of teachers is usually considered to be pedagogical skill - mastery of pedagogical skills that provide competent and pedagogically target-oriented organization of the pedagogical process. A higher level of professionalism is pedagogical skill, which is most often defined as a set of special skills and abilities that allow a teacher to effectively manage the educational and training activities of students. This level of professional activity we could observe at this lesson.
