This paper examines the forms of relations that people establish with their schooling processes. The question about the possibility of developing a literate standard in the orality of illiterate adults will be discussed from two angles: a) first, we will argue the extent to which engaging in everyday activities, without completing the formal cycles of schooling, allowed the study’s illiterate participants to develop a standard that we assume as literate in its orality; b) then, we will analyze how the level of abstraction in the concepts with scientific structure formulated by illiterate participants differ from that presented by literate participants.

Abstract

This paper examines the forms of relations that people establish with their schooling processes. The question about the possibility of developing a literate standard in the orality of illiterate adults will be discussed from two angles: a) first, we will argue the extent to which engaging in everyday activities, without completing the formal cycles of schooling, allowed the study’s illiterate participants to develop a standard that we assume as literate in its orality; b) then, we will analyze how the level of abstraction in the concepts with scientific structure formulated by illiterate participants differ from that presented by literate participants.
