note: the crossed heart is not part of the notes 🙂
Day started out early with this class discussing the educational assessment history and issues in Brazil. The reading of “Três gerações de avaliação da educação básica no Brasil: interfaces com o currículo da/na escola” by Alicia Bonamino (2012) was quite interesting and helped understand a little more about the Brazilian history. Good debates but lacked a little structure…
This class is going to be a great history lesson from me. My knowledge in Brazilian history is astoundingly small since studied all my life in American and British schools.
Professors: Eric Bettinger, Paulo Blikstein, Martin Carnoy
“The objective of this seminar is to provide students from different backgrounds an opportunity to learn about current issues and debates on Brazilian education. The seminar will cover topics on the history of Brazilian education; an overview of current school reforms at the federal level; educational assessments; education and economic growth; educational equity; teacher labor market; technology and education; early childhood; and higher education to Brazil.”
We started out with Anisio Teixeira and the “Escola Nova“ movement with the article: Manifesto dos Pioneiros da Educação Nova
Let the readings begin!
