Raffaela de Menezes Lupetina


The text focuses primarily on analyzing the changes undergone in the curriculum of the Institute of Education of Rio de Janeiro (IE) since the Law 5692 of 1971, considering the functioning of IE normal course in the 1970s, which since this Law became Specific Qualification for Teaching (HEM), in the vocational education perspective. For this, as a methodology, we proceed with the analysis of documentary sources: former students’ records, curricula and syllabus of the disciplines. We selected curricula from before and after the educational legislation imposed in 1971 to allow the observation of undergone modifications, mainly on changes in curriculum, such as the elimination or reduction of some disciplines. The theoretical background about curriculum gathers mainly Goodson (2001, 2012) and Silva (2009) studies.
