CANEN, Ana  and  XAVIER, Giseli Pereli de Moura. Multiculturalism, research and teacher training: the case of teacher education. Ensaio: aval.pol.públ.Educ. [online]. 2005, vol.13, n.48, pp.333-344. ISSN 0104-4036.

The present article discusses possibilities of interconnecting a multicultural perspective and a research dimension within teacher education. It analyses implications of such an intertwinement and discusses the extent to which those components are present within the discourse of the Brazilian National Curricular Guidelines for Teacher Education (BRASIL, 2000b). Firstly, it discusses multiculturalism and research as components of teacher education, raising tensions and possibilities of articulating both; afterwards, it discusses the context in which recent educational policies emerge and analyses emphases and silences in the national curricular guidelines as related to the role of research and of multiculturalism in its proposals. It concludes, indicating possible multicultural ways by which research could be worked out in teacher education so as to challenge dichotomies, such as the one that separates academic and practical research in teacher education.

Keywords : Multiculturalism; Research; Teacher education; Brazilian National Curricular Guidelines for Teacher Education.
