The school is a privileged territory regarding the development of social skills by young students through cultural education, such as gender relations, that tend to hierarchize people. The acquisition of gender and sexuality learnings happens in explicit and dissimulative ways at school, conducting means of thinking. On the other hand, these youngsters have an active roll in their development, they are able to manage their social needs, even when it comes down to gender patterns. The previous experience with research and extension, that follows on to this study, shows that the school is a space branded by gender, inside and outside of the classroom and that joking is an important part of this process, breaking through the normality of everyday. This research aims at understanding how gender rules are dealt by the students of a public school in Guarujá, and how masculinities and femininities appear in "zoeiras" and playful relations of the daily routine. This study also intends to develop workshops and discussions with the students, approaching gender performances through the creation of "memes". This casework will be composed by bibliographic research, ethnographic notes and field study connected with the bibliographic analyses, in order to reach the answers for this research. (AU)
