Abstract :

This article attempts to describe the forms school life assumes in contexts of urban poverty, attending specifically to bodily ways of being in school, investigating the ways through which students inhabit space and school time from the perspective of Embodiment: the embodied experience as a starting point for analyzing human participation in the cultural world. (CSORDAS, 2011) This work is part of a research project that questions the features of pedagogic tools present in extreme poverty urban settings in the Province of Buenos Aires, Argentina. We will present research advances by retrieving scenes observed in the fieldwork in secondary schools .
