Abstract. The article deals with one of the possible ways of advanced modernization of pedagogical education in Ukraine in order to create a base for the training of teachers of a new generation and to provide conditions for the formation and development of modern alternative models of professional and personal development of teachers. The idea that the integrity of the natural environment as an object of study causes the necessity of interconnection of the natural sciences that are involved to study it has been substantiated. At the level of higher education it is possible only if the principle of integration while constructing the content of the educational material will be used. It is considered as a dominant means of overcoming the contradiction between the integrity, the systemic nature of the wildlife and the fragmentary nature of its study.

The possibilities of using an integrated approach in constructing the content of education of future teaches of natural sciences at all levels of its formation (general theoretical conception, academic discipline, educational material, pedagogical activity and personal gaining) and the specifics of its implementation at each level have been revealed. The possibilities to consolidate the efforts of the lecturers of academic disciplines of different cycles in order to form a forward-looking adaptation of future specialists to changing natural and social environments have been considered.
