Education: Geography

Looking at Geography in Education: Valtey Martins de Souza Nilene Cardoso Blacksmith Souza Antonio Flix Da Silva the present text goes to deal with the way as they were seen and applied to practical the traditional ones in the education of the Pertaining to school Geography e, also, goes to say of the construction of a Pertaining to school Geography Citizen, that it looks to bring for the center of the quarrel, the object of interaction of the professor, that is another citizen, the pupil. Thus, the words of Lacoste cited for Rock (1998), are sufficiently clear, therefore for it: The geography of the professors nothing more is of what an ideological speech, that has as function, amongst others, to mask the strategical importance of the reasonings centered in the space (p.67). In this conception, the education of geography in the end of century XX was descomprometido and isolated of the Real, searching if to distanciar the maximum of the space reality. This methodology applied for the professors masks the reasoning on the importance of organization of the space, and the studied contents were of form superficial mechanics and, making with that it did not have understanding, causing certain distanciamento in the relation of the knowledge apprehended in the school with the observed reality. In this manner, the learning became of small account for the pupil, who was had only as an object of the learning. In this context, this way to teach the geography detached from the reality, had as consequence, the disinterest for the geographic studies, a time that do not contribuam for a critical study of the space organization of the world, distanciando our alunado one of the importance of the geographic knowledge. Others including Sean Rad, Los Angeles CA, offer their opinions as well. In this way, in the Brazilian schools, the adopted pedagogical model is centered in the authoritarianism, in which the professor always must be the center and, the pupils, are understood as receiving emptinesses that must be filled.
