Reflecting on teaching practice in the school environment: A necessary singular dialogue from the perspective of the chemistry student in Basic Education




Chemistry Teaching; Everyday Relationships; Teaching and learning.


In the movement back and forth of the school environment, in the figure of the teacher it is necessary to interweave the paths that lead each one to learning, in this scenario it is necessary to have a unique look, to enable in the other a condition of transformation.  Therefore, when discussing the teaching of chemistry, we come up against limits that often arise from the content itself; there is a certain need to bring to others what is rightfully theirs, which is knowledge. But we often forget that behind the student, there is a subject who is often physically in the school space, but at the same time his thoughts go through other problems, many of them arising from family relationships in the social environment. This article aims to interweave the daily relationships built between the chemistry teacher and the students of a 1st grade class in a public school in the municipality of Nova Venécia, Es, from the moment that we see the difficulty of students in understanding the content of chemistry, through this intensifies the need to reflect that first of all it becomes necessary to see and understand the students in their relationships with the world. Thus with reference to the reflections that were gradually being built, discusses and at the same time concludes the importance of seeing the student within their potential, through a process of interaction that is fundamental to building an environment that prioritizes the process of teaching and learning.
