Patriotic Education of Schoolchildren: Local History Aspect
Local history is one of the important aspects of patriotic education, and a school age is a good launching pad for the formation patriotic self-awareness. Currently, Russian Government is actively working on patriotic education of the younger generation, by developing and accepting new programs and concepts, and searching for new forms and methods for implementing patriotic activities. However, despite active attempts from the state and Russian teachers, the research problem is the lack of systematic approaches of patriotic education of schoolchildren. To analyze the existing problem, a survey of schoolchildren was conducted in this work, as well as the interview with experts in the local history. The data obtained from the survey of schoolchildren confirmed the hypothesis that there is a low interest in studying local history among children of school age. Also, during the interview, two main related problems were identified. To solve these problems, the systematic approaches of patriotic education of schoolchildren was developed. It will increase the interest of schoolchildren and help to form a valuable attitude to the history, culture, economy and geography of the Perm region.
