The project researches the process of school knowledge production related to modern and contemporaries Physics. The adopted framework is the didactics of sciences in the French tradition, in particular of the Didactic Transposition. We intend to develop theoretical and methodological knowledge able to characterize the process of didatictization of school knowledge in the perspective of curricular innovation. Besides theoretical investigation, we aim at developing, analyzing and validating teaching learning sequences (TLS) on modern and contemporary physics topics. Pedagogical and methodological barriers are also investigated for characterizing the process of contents knowledge. This project will use data taken in class room real conditions. (AU)
