Nurture of Multiculturalism of Future Teachers in the Process of Foreign Language Teaching
The ongoing process of globalization widely developed the world pedagogical theory and practice of the problem of education of multiculturalism of the personality, a competitive, morally mature type of personality who can think creatively and work in a multicultural world. Education of multiculturalism is seen as the introduction of the younger generation to ethnic, nationwide and world cultures for spiritual enrichment and formation of youth’s readiness for changes for life in a multicultural environment.
The analysis of the scientific and methodological literature shows that the problem of education of multiculturalism is considered at all times and has not lost relevance. But the problem of education of multiculturalism of future teachers in the learning process is not reflected sufficiently in the reviewed studies.
The purpose of the study is the theoretical justification and experimental testing of the education of multiculturalism among future teachers in the learning process.
The main research method was the pedagogical experiment and the development of a structurally meaningful model for education of multiculturalism of future teachers through the introduction of an elective course, on the basis of which an education program of multiculturalism was developed.
In the framework of the proposed program, an elective course “Education of Multiculturalism of Students”, training for practical classes, case studies, projects that can be used in the preparation of future teachers in the university system have been developed.
In the course of testing the proposed model, it was revealed that the integrated implementation of the proposed methods, forms and means of training and education can also be a way to solve the problem of education of multiculturalism of future teachers in the learning process.
The theoretical justification of the results of experimental work can be used for the further preparation of the content and development of training courses in pedagogy, theory and methodology of educational work.
