SCIENTIFIC LITERACY, TEACHING BY RESEARCH AND ARGUMENTATION: RELATIONS BETWEEN NATURAL SCIENCES AND SCHOOL

ABSTRACT:

The main goal of this work is to discuss and seek relations between ideas that surround scientific literacy, teaching by research and the argumentation in situations of natural sciences teaching. To this end, we choose to bring up discussions about school as a space where other cultures are presented, produced and negotiated. In this paper, elements that shape school culture and scientific culture are presented. Our proposal discusses moves to the realization of a hybrid culture in natural sciences classes: the school scientific culture. We conclude this work by highlighting how Scientific Literacy, Teaching by Research and Debate allow the concrete establishment of school scientific culture.
