Abstract
Folk pedagogy is an important means of developing multicultural competence of future primary school teachers. In 2018-2019, at the Department of Pedagogy and Methods of Pre-School and Primary Education of the Birsk Branch of Bashkir State University (Republic of Bashkortostan), we conducted a research study aimed at the theoretical justification and experimental verification of pedagogical conditions that promote the effective development of the prospective primary school teacher’s multicultural competence on the basis of using the means of folk pedagogy. Taking into consideration the multiethnic and multilingual group of students, consisting of the representatives of Russian, Bashkir, Tatar and Mari nationalities, we used the means of folk pedagogy of these ethnic groups in the educational process. The results of the investigation confirmed the hypothesis. Eventually, we came to the conclusion that using the elements of folk pedagogy considerably promotes the development of prospective teachers’ multicultural competence.
