ZANATTA, Beatriz Aparecida. The intuitive method and sensorial perception as a legacy of Pestalozzi to school geography. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2005, vol.25, n.66, pp.165-184. ISSN 0101-3262. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-32622005000200003.
This paper is a contribution to the history of the pedagogic practice of school geography. It seeks to provide teachers training with elements allowing to understand the pedagogic conceptions that, from the XIXth century onward, have guided the practice of geography teaching. The main objective is to present a reflection on both the contributions of Pestalozzi to the methodology of geography teaching and the impacts of his ideas on geography teaching in Brazil. Its conclusion highlights that many of the ideas and principles of Pestalozzi are present in the current proposals of teaching, though enriched by the reflections of renowned theoreticians of the contemporary pedagogic and geographical thought.
