MACHADO, Laêda Bezerra and ANICETO, Rosimere de Almeida. Core and periphery of social representation cycles between learning teachers. Ensaio: aval.pol.públ.Educ. [online]. 2010, vol.18, n.67, pp.345-363. ISSN 0104-4036. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-40362010000200009.
This article identifies the social representations of cycles of learning among teachers of Recife and its practical implications, pointing out the boss and structure of these representations. Participants were 103 teachers. The collection procedure used was the free association of words. The data were processed by EVOC, which provides a chart with four quadrants where we place the likely core and peripheral system of social representation. The results show a streamlined speech, i.e., the boss of this representation to suggest that teachers, although in practice criticize and deny the cycles of learning in their representations reveal line with the proposal of the municipal network. Therefore, we suggest denser studies of everyday practices of teachers, to infer aspects of social representations that seemed little revealed.
