Menga Lüdke Ana Ivenicki About the authors

Abstract

The vision of our paths towards the formation of Basic Education teachers, together with those that have been followed in two countries, Scotland and England, raised a series of questions for discussion about several problems that we face in this very important aspect of our Education. Among them, the difficult balance between the theoretical and practical components of this training stands out, closely linked to the articulation between the formative work of the University and that of the Basic Education School, the two institutions responsible for the training of our teachers. In this text we bring analysis and suggestions in this regard.
