In the educational process of acquiring or learning languages, humanitarian knowledge and related skills (both academic and extracurricular, also termed as hard and soft skills) are responsible for not only a native speaker’s cognitive activity, but also for their behavioral scenarios. This statement ensures the relevance of this research. The objective of the article is to determine methodological recommendations that can be used in Russian language classes at educational institutions of the Republic of Belarus which aim at preserving regional / national “places and images of memory” presented in fiction and journalistic texts. The material that is used in class comprises texts created by Marc Chagall, Robert Rozhdestvensky, David Simanovich that aim at educating the generational trajectory by means of the language.
