THE COLLEGE OF APPLICATION/UFRGS AND THE DIFFUSION OF EXPERIMENTAL SECONDARY CLASSES: BETWEEN THE FILE AND THE ORAL MEMORY (1959-1981)

<p></p><p>Abstract The article investigates memories of the College of Application (CAp/Ufrgs), an educational institution that was established as a sort of pedagogical vanguard in the Porto Alegre society. We discuss the implementation of the secondary experimental classes, as an appropriation of the French Nouvelles Classes. Oral and archival documents were examined and allowed to infer that the CAp is the product of his time, represents the propagation of discourses of educational renewal, especially the studies of Psychology that have come to occupy relevant space in school issues and teacher training. The educational practices of the CAp show the cultural circularity between educators, especially French and Brazilian, who for many years were linked by the missions and pedagogical exchanges.</p><p></p>
