The article deals with the actualization of the educational (upbringing) potential of English textbooks used in senior grades of high school. In the process of teaching a foreign language, a teacher can also influence the development of the material, spiritual, professional, and life values ​​of children through the correct setting of learning goals as well as through the selection of the content of educational materials. They should be informative, rely on the knowledge and experience of students and cause certain emotional experiences. This means that the upbringing concept, which is enshrined in the federal law “On Education in the Russian Federation” and the Federal State Educational Standard and is implemented through various subjects, including the subject “Foreign language”, comes to the fore. In view of this fact the author of the article considers various approaches to education while teaching a foreign language and analyses the way the concept is realized in one of the textbooks used for teaching English in Russian high schools.
