CARREIRO, Maria Silvia Almeida. A geographical look on the elaboration of the municipal school atlases of Rio Claro. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2003, vol.23, n.60, pp.169-178. ISSN 0101-3262. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622003000200004.
This work aims at presenting a retrospective of the elaboration process of the Rio Claro Municipal School Atlas. In this trajectory, one may recognize the importance of studying the locality, mastering the cartographic language and integrating the three forms of language present in its pages: maps, photographs and written texts. Such a big challenge was deeply experienced, from the reflections on the teaching practices of this group of public school teachers-authors that marked its beginning to its final use of the atlas pages in the participating schools.
