LINFE aims to understand the organization methods and the operation of educational institutions, as well as how the mediations that get implemented impact different areas in the experience of childhood, in and out of school: children’s development, social relations, their affections and their own way of attributing sense to the world.

The group’s researches bring results that act directly on the initial and continuous training of teachers, on the reflection about practices in Portuguese Language teaching in basic schools – related to the learning of textual genres -, on the teaching-learning process, on didactic models, from the theoretical-methodological assumption of Sociodiscursive Interactionism (ISD).
