The Base Nacional Comum Curricular (BNCC) [National Common Core Curriculum] has raised significant debates about the constitution of a school curriculum. In this article, we develop a reflection on how this curricular proposal has mobilized discussions about the possibilities of constituting and developing History teaching. As a regulatory device of education, what kind of power does this document have over what is practiced in schools? In addition to the constraints and moorings that the curriculum generates in teaching, could we also see the potential for teaching History that dialogs with the realities experienced by our students and shared in the school space? Based on these guiding questions, we have developed this article in three parts: first, we present the publication path of BNCC and the clashes surrounding the teaching of History, as well as the concepts of curriculum and History teaching with which we work. In a second step, we present how the disciplinary community (GOODSON, 1997) debated the History meanings present at the BNCC, based on a survey of scientific articles that presented this curriculum as a research theme. And in a third moment, we exhibit some keys for reading the document based on the concepts of "general competencies" and "Historian attitude”. Finally, we can answer the question: what possibilities can the BNCC provide for meaningful teaching in History teaching?
