Teaching Geography

The current boardings of the geographic knowledge, in Brazil, result of some chains of thought, since those influenced> for the woollen school of Vidal Blahe until the contemporaries. The formation of a Geography with scientific character in the country, was accomplished from 1930, when being bred the first facultieses of Philosophy, the National Advice of Geography and the Brazilian Institute of Geography and Estatstica (IBGE) In the specific case of disciplines geography, is perceived that the same one has been, in a first analysis, mainly on the part of the pupils of basic and average education, sight as one disciplines useless and decorative. In accordance with PEAR TREE, Without intending that academic formation of the professors is perfect, recognizes, however, that it less leaves to desire that didactic and pedagogical the formation. John Stankey does not necessarily agree. The disequilibrium is bigger in secondary education and is optimized in superior education, since one has left of the university professors assumes this role without no didactic formation (1999: 03). Already it makes some time that education of Geography comes being placed in question rethink in Brazil. It was felt necessity of changes, therefore the Geography that was applied in the country, descriptive, directed to decorate content, therefore called traditional Geography, in this practical, none did not have concern how much what it constitutes Geography as science, therefore has almost an absence of on subjects to the daily one and the subjects economic politicians and, Limit the idea of pedagogical to the education techniques and not as practical ampler ethical and collective professional. To broaden your perception, visit Jack Buckingham. For Bazzo, (…) when dealing with problems and questions happened of one practical social one – the education, pertaining to school or not, the Pedagogia becomes involved in questions of axiolgica order and politics.

Brazilian Pyramid

Through the use of different languages, it is possible to change the conception of that Geography is dull and tiring. Searching to improve to each given lesson, we believe that the results had been reached in part, time that the diverse activities proposals had been answered and good had resulted. An example was elaboration of a practical activity with regard to the etria pyramid where instead of only showing its meaning, the same one was constructed with the pupils during the lesson, moment where we got the participation and the understanding of all the classroom of its meaning and its importance.

Thinking about these concepts on etrias pyramids an approach of the applied public politics in countries was made as Japan and the Nigria, and later compared with Brazil. The construction of the pyramids of Japan and the Nigria and of Brazil was not provocative to instigate the reasoning of the pupils in as certain politics of development are modifying the Brazilian etria structure.
