OLIVEIRA, Jane Raquel Silva de and QUEIROZ, Salete Linhares. Scientific language rhetoric: from the theoretical basis to the production of didactic material for undergraduate Chemistry teaching. Quím. Nova [online]. 2012, vol.35, n.4, pp. 851-857. ISSN 0100-4042. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-40422012000400036.
This work is part of a study that focused on analyzing the contributions of didactic activities related to scientific language rhetoric characteristics aimed at developing students' abilities to identify such characteristics in chemistry scientific texts and critical reading of those texts. In this study, we present the theoretical basis adopted to determine the scientific discourse characteristics and for the production of the didactic material used in those activities. Latour, Coracini and Campanario studies on persuasive rhetorical strategies present in scientific articles aided the production of such material.
