Abstract

This project is guided by some questions: How could biology education (especially ecology contents) aid a citizen to give opinion on issues relating to preservation and conservation of biodiversity? How would the didactic proposals lead to understanding of processes connected with biodiversity? How to approach the scientific work of ecology with the biology education? How could we offer aids to teachers to prepare their classes? These issues require studies and proposals that can meet such the demands of schools as the research questions in science education. Our research has as main objective to validate Investigative Didactic Sequences (SDIs) in ecology that may contribute to the formation of critical citizens. These citizens could be able to opine on issues relating to the conservation and preservation of biodiversity. The specific objectives are: production of analytical tools for validation of SDIs; production of the SDIs based on the demands of schools and the principles of teaching based on inquiry and scientific literacy; the comprehension about problems concerning the implementation of SDIs; discuss the teaching of ecology and its implications in understanding processes related to biodiversity. SDIs are going to submit to a validation process and their phases are going to recorded and transcribed for analysis. The expected results will be the approach between scientific culture and students and teachers. This is important because they can understand the ecology, the ways of production and the relationship with biodiversity discussions. (AU)
