This research project refers to an Abroad Research Internship to be developed at the Department of Human Geography at the University of Toronto. It is part of a larger investigation developed at the Atelier of Research and Practice in Geographical Education (Apegeo), where we investigated some Brazilian educational policies, with emphasis on the "New" High School and Teacher Education. This Research Internship Abroad project aims to understand how the most recent educational policies for the High School level in São Paulo and in Ontario-Canada have acted in the process of discursive hegemonization of new meanings for school geographic knowledge, based on a curriculum structured by fields of knowledge - Humanities and Social Sciences - and curriculum flexibility, in which students choose their academic or study "paths" based on their individual interests and life projects. The proposed methodology for analyzing the empirical material to be produced from a documentary and bibliographical survey will be based on the theoretical-methodological foundations of the triangulation of concepts: i) "policy performance", proposed by Ball, Maguire, and Braun (2015); ii) hegemony and discursive practices present in the Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe and; iii) of professional knowledge landscapes, proposed by Clare Brooks.
