In recent years, the relevance of the problem a "crisis of values" has been increasing in our country and at the global level. So, the attention of teachers who regard personal development as their task focuses on educational programs aimed at forming value orientation. This paper is aimed at discussing the views of history teachers on the values and value orientation of education. The work of 83 history teachers forming the value orientation of students at history lessons was analyzed. The data were collected as a result of the study of quantitative and qualitative nature by scanning. The quantitative data were collected through a questionnaire consisting of 29 items, and the qualitative data were obtained through interviews. History teachers involved in the research work (teaching at 7-11 grades) expressed opinions on the extent to which students have learned the disciplines such as World History, Man and Society, and value orientation provided by academic programs. It was revealed that in most cases the work of history teachers is aimed at developing students’ values such as devotion to their native country and nation, historical consciousness, unity, dignity, independence, industry, cultivating knowledge of the historical and cultural heritage, respect for national and spiritual values. The paper also presents the ways and methods of forming the value orientation of students such as analysis of historical texts, working with archival materials, watching history films, excursions to historical sites and museums, carrying out scientific research. The results of research on forming the system of values in students at history lessons are important for educators.
