MACEDO, Maria do Socorro Alencar Nunes  and  MORTIMER, Eduardo Fleury. Interactions on literacy practices in classrooms: dealing with projects in the first grade. Perspectiva [online]. 2005, vol.23, n.01, pp.131-152. ISSN 0102-5473.

This paper discusses literacy’s practice in a classroom of the first grade in an elementary school. The analysis are based on references on literacy as a social practice, on Bakhtin’s perspective on discourse and on references from ethnographers that analyze classroom interactions. The results indicate that the teacher’s practice mediated the construction of an “open” discursive dynamic that has not limited the meanings constructed by students about the epidemy of the dengue, the theme debated in the class. We also observed that the discussions and reflections created an opportunity to students to construct actions to prevent this illness.
