Philological Class

The journal «Philological Class» is committed to explore the issues of bringing together academic science with the real practice of school education and the formation of a uniform system of secondary education. The topics of the Journal are defined by the standing sections:

Projects. Topics. Hypotheses

This section formulates the strategy of the journal. It publishes the programs of secondary school philological education in humanities; educational projects, connected with higher school teaching of the Russian language, literature and interrelated subjects - psycholinguistics, ethno linguistics, sociolinguistics and linguistic culturology; hypotheses reflecting new approaches to certain phenomena in the history of literature.

Formation of a Unified System of Language Education

The section covers the new trend in philological education that takes into account the specific features of reflection of language in the mind of the speakers and the psychological mechanisms of effective language teaching. It analyzes the factors stimulating speaking activity of a schoolchild. Special attention is paid to experimental methods of speech ability diagnostics and verbal creativity training.

Pedagogical Technologies

The section publishes materials dedicated to mainstream problems of secondary school philological education and to innovational technologies in different branches of philological education.

Trajectories of the Contemporary Literary Process

The unique property of contemporary literature lies in the possibility of parallel development of several traditions, which makes it possible to publish analyses belonging to different literary paradigms (postmodernism, postrealism, neorealism, etc.).

Getting Ready for a Lesson / The Lesson Is in Progress

This section formulates the tactics of the journal. It publishes both original lesson plans and supporting materials and suggests new interpretations of the school program literary texts. Authors include not only scholarly methodologists but also practical teachers.

Slow Reading

Rereading Classics

The section publishes articles suggesting new, sometimes unexpected interpretation of the works of both Russian and foreign classics.


The section carries reviews of the most significant scientific conferences and literary journals, reviews of monographs, textbooks and supporting materials in philological subjects.
