This research aims to investigate the forms of writing evaluation adopted by literacy teachers, belonging to the regular and reinforcement classes, in the 1st, 2st and 3st grades of Elementary School from Rio Claro/SP municipal public schools. Thus, it is intended to understand which didactic-pedagogical measures are proposed to students who present difficulties in writing; to conduct a survey and characterization of students enrolled in tutoring classes and/or complementary program; to characterize the methodological strategies used in the pedagogical work with these students in the reinforcement classes and/or complementary program, aiming to help in overcoming the difficulties presented. Furthermore, 24 teachers will participate in the research, being 18 literacy teachers and 6 teachers responsible for the reinforcement classes and/or complementary program in effect, of both sexes, working in Elementary School I of public schools of the municipal network.
