Pedagogical Sciences workshops: influential pedagogical movements in teachers' training

Teachers have been living with an insistent discourse about their continuing development over the last decades. A great number of studies and researches reinforce this as a real necessity. In the great Brazilian urban centers teachers have many development opportunities in brief or long courses and workshops, offered by the training teacher establishments. In this work we present part of a study on Pedagogical Science Workshops offered in Rio de Janeiro, to teachers in training for the last ten years, considering this an important role in teachers’ professional development. Based on the philosophy of language and references to science teachers theoretical development we have analyzed the titles and descriptions of 175 science workshops, believing that these texts represent a particular dialogue category among institution (researches), teachers (school) and society. Thus we wish to identify the present voices that show us the most influential pedagogical movements throughout the period.
