Workshop 5: How to choose the textbook?
Proponents: Rubia Barcelos Amaral-Schio, Alan Silva dos Santos and Liara Alves Gentil
When recognizing the importance and breadth of the use of textbooks in the support of teaching activities, it is worth mentioning some of its possible functions, among which: "to assist in the annual didactic-pedagogical planning and in the management of the classes, to favor didactic-pedagogical training; to assist in the evaluation of student learning, to favor the acquisition of pertinent professional knowledge, assuming the role of reference text" (CARVALHO & LIMA, 2010). Therefore, the choice and use of the textbook should involve, among other aspects, the affinity that the teacher identifies between the presented proposal and his didactic-pedagogical choices, besides its usefulness to extend the knowledge that he has in his area of activity (TIBURCIO ET AL., 2017).
This workshop is part of the research carried out in the field of Mathematics Education, which aims to analyze questions related to the textbook, from the National Program that legitimizes the textbooks to be used in public schools in the country, to issues related to content and to teaching practice.
The proposal is to discuss, in a practical way, the three possibilities of acting as agents in the process of production and use of the textbook: the teacher's point of view (how should the book be chosen?); of the evaluator (what do you consider in the analysis of a textbook?); and the author (how to tailor his approach and methodology to the book so that it is approved and pleases the teacher?). Regarding the reflection on these three perspectives, the practical focus will be given to the role of the teacher in the choice of the textbook.
