Crenças epistêmicas em mudança? Um estudo investigativo do conhecimento entre futuros professores de história

Bruce VanSledright, Kimberly Reddy

Resumo


Este estudo investiga crenças epistêmicas em mudança na área de história entre 18 futuros professores de história. Colhendo dados desses estudantes de graduação em história que estavam considerando seguir a carreira docente, o estudo procede a uma investigação sobre como as crenças epistêmicas podem mudar neste momento crucial de desenvolvimento. O instrumento de escala Likert serviu como ferramenta para reunir dados primários e foi aplicado em um estágio antes e depois do curso. Dados de observação e de entrevista aumentaram os dados da escala. Um curso sediado em uma universidade serviu como veículo educacional com o objetivo de influenciar as crenças epistêmicas. Os resultados entre os futuros professores foram mistos. Algumas crenças epistêmicas dos alunos não se alteraram, enquanto outras mudaram, e algumas fortemente. As razões para as influências variadas são o tema da discussão. E as implicações dos resultados também serão considerados.

Palavras-chave: Conhecimento epistêmico; Pensamento histórico; Ensino de história; Futuros Professores.
