HISTORY AND PHILOSOPHY OF BIOLOGY : PREPARATION AND ANALYSIS OF A PROPOSAL FOR TEACHING TRAINING .

Abstract

The teaching of History and Philosophy of Science is strongly recommended by the official curricula, guidelines for the formation of area teachers and literature. However, research has shown that this issue is hardly present in the initial and continuing training courses for teachers in teaching materials and basic education and that teachers and students have distorted views about the nature of science and scientific knowledge. For these reasons, this study aims to develop a proposal for a course of continuing education for biology teachers on the history and philosophy of science, develop it together with the teachers connected to the Regional Directorate of Jaboticabal Education and analyze the results of this formation. The proposal development steps include: 1) the analysis of the State Curriculum São Paulo Biology and teaching materials linked to it, trying to see if this subject is present and how it is addressed; 2) preparation of a questionnaire to collect the teachers' views on the subject; 3) theoretical development and construction sequences and materials to be presented and discussed with the teachers. It is therefore a qualitative study. Data will be collected through document analysis (the teaching material of public schools), survey and recording of meetings by recording and subsequent transcription. For the analysis, will be used the techniques of content analysis. (AU)
