Résumé partiel
In science education is important to discuss the relationship between culture and science, allowing the confrontation between common sense and scientific knowledge. One perspective to promote this discussion is based on the construction of new meanings on the natural environment, which collaborates with a better relationship between society and nature and also enables more integrated pedagogical practices to the local context. This study discusses the relations between students and their environment from cultural and scientific issues. Therefore, we analyzed the meanings that students and science teacher from a rural school in Our Lady of Glory, SE, located in the Caatinga, attach to the local environment, and how this is addressed in the classroom, specifically in teaching Science. Therefore, we analyzed the four most widely adopted textbooks in the schools of Sergipe hinterland, but also identified the meanings presented by the faculty of Sciences through in interviews. The meanings that the students were identified through drawings and questionnaires. In general, students recognize that Savanna is biodiverse natural environment, with issues regarding the conservation, which influence the socioeconomic situation in the region. As for cultural relations with the environment, they also recognize that some students live in the Caatinga region, but not self-identify as catingueiros. These results reflect possibly prejudiced against the stereotype of people from areas of Caatinga that are broadcast for years by various cultural artifacts. As for the textbook, it was realized that this presents superficial and outdated information regarding current research on the biome, transmitting myths already debunked by the scientific community, for example, that the biome is poor in species.
