SEMEGHINI-SIQUEIRA, Idméa; BEZERRA, Gema Galgani and GUAZZELLI, Tatiana. Supervised training course and reading, writing and oral communication practices in elementary and middle schools. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2010, vol.31, n.111, pp.563-583. ISSN 0101-7330. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-73302010000200014.
This paper discusses the context of a distance communication project involving Brazilian elementary and middle schools (EMS) students mediated by trainees and teachers. This supervised training course for students of the Pedagogy and the Pre-service Teacher Education Programs is part of the "Portuguese Teaching Methodology" course. It aims to motivate EMS students to take on their role as subjects in interlocutions, discovering the pleasure of both writing and reading, and the importance of being well equipped to achieve successful communication. The training course modality consists of guidelines that help trainees to build specific projects in cooperation with EMS teachers, involving intense work with verbal and non-verbal languages. The project development allows both exchanges between university and school, and the pre-service and continuing education of mother-tongue teachers.
