Psychological and pedagogical conditions for the implementation of content and language integrated learning (CLIL) as a method of professional orientation of secondary school students of the humanities classes


The current trend of changing education has affected all stages of education. Innovations have affected the secondary school classes (grades 10–11) of an ordinary Russian school. Now we are dealing with a model of specialized classes, which consists in dividing students into classes according to main subjects. It should be noted that the current state of grades 10–11 is characterized by an increasing interest in the humanities profile of education, which encourages methodologists to search for new and optimal methods of teaching foreign languages. Recently, the content and language integrated learning (CLIL), which consists in studying a school subject through a foreign language, has become especially popular. The article considers the main psychological and pedagogical conditions for the use of content and language integrated learning for the purpose of professional orientation of students of the secondary school humanities classes. The analysis of the existing methodological literature allowed the author to identify certain psychological and pedagogical conditions that allow teaching secondary school students a foreign language on the basis of content and language integrated learning. These include: the use of tasks that reflect the specifics of the preparation of the corresponding profile of higher school education, which allows students of the humanities classes of secondary school to get acquainted with future activities in a foreign language by performing problem tasks; professional orientation of training; the required level of foreign language proficiency of secondary school students at the moment of graduating from school at the B2 level; the distribution of students by the level of foreign language proficiency; intra-profile diversity, which takes into account the development of various branches of the humanities; competences of a foreign language teacher; motivation of secondary school students to learn a foreign language through content and language integrated learning. Special emphasis in the paper is placed on the competence of a foreign language teacher who conducts his course on the basis of content and language integrated learning.
