We will center in the space-time contextualization and in the decoding of the historical knowledge, to promote an appropriation of a knowledge that is structured, critical and worthy of meditation. We understand that the classes shall be interactive and participated with a diversification of resources and strategies: descriptive-interrogative classes; from debates to group-works making use of the information research; the analysis of historical sources; the study made through actualized synthesis. Works will be developed that will be related to the analysis and discussion of the bibliography regarding the several periods dealt in the proposed program. They will also relate to the reading and interpretation of documents. Evaluation (three moments): two written tests (45%+45%); one individual work (10%).
