SILVA, Roberto Ribeiro da; RAZUCK, Renata Cardoso de Sá Ribeiro  and  TUNES, Elizabeth. A challenge for schools: work as a general educational principle. Quím. Nova [online]. 2008, vol.31, n.2, pp.452-461. ISSN 0100-4042.

This work aims at investigating and proposing strategies to improve the comprehension of Chemistry concepts by high school students. One of these strategies consists in workshops that emphasize the notion of work as a general educational principle, in the perspective of polytechnic education. Interviews (pre and post-workshops) were used to evaluate the results. In post-workshop interviews, a significant incorporation of scientific concepts was observed, as well as a considerable improvement in the interpretation of experiments.

Keywords : polytechnic education; chemical education; high school Chemistry.
