Abstract (English):
Functional literacy is an important skill that can be developed in a second language classroom at secondary and high school. This article introduces a functional literacy program of advanced training for teachers of foreign languages. The author used axiological, personal-activity, and interdisciplinary approaches with non-participant observation methods and pedagogical modeling to analyze legal norms, school standards, and foreign and domestic publications. The program offers a single school-university track represented as a course of professional training for teachers of foreign languages at the Siberian Institute of Management, Novosibirsk. Teachers of foreign languages donated their teaching and learning experience in preparing students for state exams in foreign languages and functional literacy development. The study revealed some gaps in the academic standardization, advanced training for teachers, and methodological support for Second Language at school. The author identified vectors of prospective development in the field of functional literacy as school, as well as the reasons behind the passive attitude of most school teachers to functional literacy development. Advanced training in this sphere should be compulsory and interdisciplinary. The connection between functional literacy, state exam diagnostics, and teachers’ competences is of exceptional importance in Russian education and requires more continuity.
