This request for Bolsa de Pesquisa no Exterior (BPE) [Research Grant Abroad] is justified by the relevance of the study proposed for extending the analysis to be conducted by the research in progress (FAPESP Project nº 2013/16270-7). By using the social realism perspective as reference (YOUNG, 2007, 2010, 2011; WEELAHAN, 2007, 2010; MOORE, 2012), the aforementioned research aims at identifying and discussing the knowledge regarded as relevant - in official curricular documents and concepts developed by teachers who deal with that knowledge within the framework of both its production and transmission - so that it is made available to the Basic Education at Brazilian schools. Thus, the research to be conducted abroad intends to add to the processing and analysis of the information collected within the Brazilian context and to pose the following question: what are the elements involved in the performance of agents in the recontextualization process, and how those elements add to the analysis of the school knowledge creation process, from the different fields of specialized knowledge and questions involving the teaching of that knowledge? The concept developed by Basil Bernstein is about how texts undergo changes, from their production context, in different instances and by the action of different agents, up to their transmission context. Thus, the intention is to discuss the curriculum within the articulation between the field of specialized knowledge production - under the social realism perspective - and its recontextualization process for shaping the school knowledge.
