A Worldview in Practice: Cross-Disciplinary Propose for Textbooks and Course Materials
This paper presents a case study about the development of a cross-disciplinary propose for preprimary, primary and secondary private school textbooks and course materials based on a Judeo- Christian educational worldview. A Private Brazilian System of Education (PBSE) located in São Paulo-Brazil developed this proposal. The PBSE is reasoned in a worldview, which considers ontology preceding epistemology in order to try to reach a more integrated perception, comprehension and reflection of the study object. A cross-disciplinary team of teachers gathered to elaborate a critical basis for producing and reviewing the textbooks and course materials. This critical basis considered the guidelines of the National Brazilian Curriculum Parameters and academic researches. The PBSE Pedagogical Proposal has already published around 700 school textbooks and course materials (student and teacher textbooks, teacher manuals, workbooks) since 2009, and is currently used in about 250 schools, 50000 students, in 21 out of 24 Brazilian States.
