The relevance of the research presented in the article is determined by the need for theoretical justification and practical development of the content and forms of a modern teacher’s world outlook training in the conditions of educational paradigm change. The lack of such training in modern conditions generates ideological dissonance, contradictory professional pedagogical guidelines of a teacher, unwillingness to reveal for students personal reasons of learning. The purpose of the research is to study the characteristics of a contemporary teacher outlook, to develop and test the methodology for organizing teacher's world outlook training in a general education organization. The main method of investigation was the method of diagnostic situations, with the help of which the characteristic properties of the investigated phenomenon were detected, fixed and changed in real action. The result of teacher's world outlook training organization was the theoretical and practical readiness of the teacher to show for students personal reasons of learning. Theoretical readiness of a teacher was ensured by mastering the basic axiological principles, understanding the values and meanings of modern education and pedagogical profession. Practical readiness was achieved in the process of discussions, debates, case studies by teachers, complex psychological and pedagogical situations resolving and the development of subject-oriented pedagogical technologies. The qualitative result of a teacher's world outlook training is the clarity of his pedagogical position, confidence in the relationship with students, the combination of pedagogical requirements and humane attitude to students. The quantitative result of world outlook training is an increase in the number of school teachers who take the initiative in their professional activities, reducing the number of problem situations with students. Theoretical and practical significance of the research is that the proposed methodology for organizing teacher's world outlook training in general education organization allows the teacher to identify and resolve his world outlook dissonances.

New educational standards implementation prioritizes the projective orientation of training in school education. Therefore, consideration of educational activity only as the process of obtaining ready knowledge should be abandoned. Thus, the relevance of the studied problem is substantiated by the need to develop methodical works connected with the introduction of inter-subject projects into mathematics teachers’ pedagogical activity as mathematics has a wide application field in various sciences, though, in classes, it is left behind due to time limits and insufficient mathematical apparatus school students possess. All the above mentioned specifies the goal of the paper: to define opportunities of project-based activity application in integration of mathematical and natural-science disciplines in math classes grades 5-9. The paper proves the necessity to apply project-based technology in the form of inter-subject projects in mathematics. The author provides examples of this technology using in classes that give an idea of active projecting elements using methods. Practical application of this system compensates the lack of meta-subject technologies tools in pedagogical activity as it demands the ability to work in team, communicative skills, tolerance, self-organization, abilities to set goals independently, to achieve them and to analyze obtained results. In addition, the author of the article emphasizes that the project method allows to diversify the learning process significantly, to include a creative component in it, and thus to stimulate the growth of motivation for deeper study not only of mathematics but also of disciplines integrated with it, and to carry out vocational guidance work. The material can be interesting to practicing mathematics teachers who work within the framework of the system-activity approach, teachers of other subjects interested in project activities of an intersubjective orientation, as well as to students of pedagogical specialties.

The relevance of the study is due to the fact that many adolescents experience difficulties in the process of socialization. A family as an institution of primary social formation of the person can help a teenager to become a valuable member of the society or, on the contrary, to complicate the process. That is why, the aim of the article is the study of family influence factors on the results of the teenager socialization such as family structure (complete, incomplete), value orientations of parents, upbringing style (authoritarian, democratic, permissive), the type of parent-child relationships (dictatorship, guardianship, non-interference, cooperation). While conducting the study, we used the scientific method of domestic and foreign pedagogues, psychologists and sociologists scientific experience theoretical analysis, to research the problems of family influence on teenager socialization. We drew the conclusion that the family provides both direct (using the mechanism of supporting) and indirect (via the authentication mechanism) influence on the socialization of a teenager. The most important role in this process belongs to upbringing and its style: democratic style contributes to the social development of a teenager personality; authoritarian and permissive styles complicate it. Considering the type of family relationships, we admit that only cooperation between parents and children has a beneficial effect on the development of a person, capable of entering the society; dictatorship, guardianship and non-interference in family relations form in a teenager distorted patterns of behavior in society, which complicate its socialization. A favorable result of teenager social development depends on family structure too. So, one-parent family (usually lack of father than mother) weakens the social position of an adolescent in society, which in its turn leads to the problems in the relationship of the person with peers and adults. Two parents family helps to prevent such difficulties for teenager. The article may be interesting to teachers and students, who deal with the problems of family influence on teenagers socialization in such disciplines as social pedagogy, psychology, sociology. The article can be useful for parents of teenagers to understand how to ensure a successful adaptation of the child to the society.
