The relevance of the study is determined by the fact that an academic subject “Sakha as an official language” is a new subject in secondary school, thereby theoretical and methodological foundations of teaching this subject are insufficiently developed, the advanced pedagogical experience of teachers is lacking theoretical insight. Therefore this article is aimed at coverage of theoretical assumptions of these problems. The article deals with a legislative framework related to the introduction of school subject “Sakha as the official language” in the basic curriculum of the educational institutions of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia); the new content of this educational subject in Russian-language schools of Yakutia has been determined; the principles and methods for teaching lexical and grammatical material have been proposed; various options for the organization of educational process have been presented. The article materials are of practical value in creating a new generation of the relevant educational complex and development of theoretical and methodological foundations of teaching this academic subject for the Russian-language schools under the new Federal State Educational Standard.
