  • Gabriela Gonçalves Rosa da Silva
  • Eliane Mimesse Prado




This research analyzed how the otherness appeared in history textbooks. It was verified that the discourse of equality and inclusion was described in handbooks of Brazilian history adopted on 7th grades of middle school. This option arises due to the content presented in that grade. Issues related to the other were researched. The sources were the handbooks indicated for the 7th grades in 2008 in the Book Guide of the Textbook National Program and used by teachers. It was concluded that in spite of new methodologies and the innovative discourse there is an ethnocentric perspective about certain events. This is fact often repeated by teachers in their daily practices.

Key words: Teaching of history. Otherness. Textbooks.
