Abstract

This paper presents an experience including elaboration, application and analysis of Historical Texts of Pedagogical Nature including the reception, acceptance and propagation of Copernicus’ work.The historical texts of pedagogical nature were used in an outreach course at Piauí Federal University (UFPI) attended by students from Chemistry, Biology and Natural Science courses. The students read the texts and answered some questions about Nature of Science and History of Astronomy. The course used explicit and reflexive approach towards the Nature of Science. Thus, this paper aims to evaluate if Historical Texts of Pedagogical Nature are legitimate tools for the insertion of Nature of Science in higher education.
