CAMARGO, Eder Pires de  and  NARDI, Roberto. Difficulties and first alternatives found by teachers in the elaboration of optics teaching activities for students with visual deficiency. Rev. Bras. Ensino Fís. [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.1, pp.115-126. ISSN 1806-1117.

Partial outcomes of a study aimed to verify future High School teachers performance during the development of a Teaching Practice undergraduate course. The student teachers were asked to plan, elaborate and teach, in a classroom situation, optics topics to a class which included visual handicapped pupils. Data analysis shows that the main difficulties found by the student physics' teachers are related to which approach will be used to perceive phenomena dependent on vision and also to the need to break away from traditional pedagogy.. On the other hand, as alternatives, future teachers have shown creativity in order to overcome passive aptitudes related to this educational problem, working out methodological strategies that do not require the knowing/seeing relation, as well as, emphasizing oral communication within the physics teaching context.

Keywords : physics teaching; visual deficiency; optics teaching activities; physics teachers professional development.
