In the mid-1980s, the so-called Renewal Movement emerged in the field of Physical Education (PE). It is a period strongly marked by the influence of the critical theorizations about the area, its teachers and its productions, as well as on the elaboration of curricular documents. Receiving a boost from the political reopening period in Brazil, by the end of the military dictatorship, the said movement has been considered a moment of paradigm break by the scholars of the area, that is, PE became no longer guided exclusively by a kind of practice intended for the development of physical fitness inside the school. The present work aims to analyze the Minas Gerais curriculum of PE, published in 1978 by the State Department of Education of Minas Gerais. Through a qualitative approach to content analysis, we verify the solid presence of the traditional theorizations of curriculum in its interior. However, we highlight the beginnings of the critical debate that inspired the quoted movement. In the structure, we present the methodological description of the research, a synthesis of the curricular theorizations and the contextualization of education and PE in the 1970s. The analysis is based on theoretical references in the field of education and PE. Finally, we argue that the Minas document, at the peak of the military government, presented indications of a tension, which suggests it had already been seeking more critical paths for PE in schools.
