Abstract

SANTOS, Marlene de Fátima dos; MARCON, Daniel  and  TRENTIN, Daiane Toigo. Inserting Physical Education in the area of Languages, codes and their technologies. Motriz: rev. educ. fis. [online]. 2012, vol.18, n.3, pp. 571-580. ISSN 1980-6574.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1980-65742012000300017.

The High School National Curriculum Parameters introduced Physical Education in the area of Languages, Codes and their Technologies, along with other subjects like Portuguese language, Arts, Information Technology, Literature and Foreign Modern Language. Thus, this study aimed to investigate how teachers understand Physical Education in this area. For achieving this, a qualitative case study was done, in which 16 teachers from three public state schools with over 1.500 students. The results, obtained through a questionnaire, demonstrate the teachers' difficulty in developing interdisciplinary projects, in identifying the possible relations among disciplines, and even in recognizing Physical Education as part of the area of Languages, Codes, and their Technologies. These are, therefore, important issues to be considered in the challenge of implementing the legal propositions in the schools of Primary Education.

Keywords : High school; Language; Interdisciplinarity.
