THE PHYSICAL EDUCATION TEACHER'S MANUALS IN THE NATIONAL TEXTBOOK PLAN
Keywords:School Physical Education, National Textbook Plan, curriculum, neoliberalism, textbook, public policies
Physical Education was included in the National Textbook Plan (PNLD) in 2019, and the teacher's manual was the adopted book model. This article analyzes the insertion of Physical Education in this program and considers the course of textbooks in this curricular component and the alignment of teacher manuals with the neoliberal curriculum policies that have invaded the field of Brazilian education in the recent decades. First, we present the context of Physical Education textbooks in Brazil, from gymnastic guides, through textbooks, to PNLD manuals, a moment in which school Physical Education awakens new relevance in the publishing market. Then, we carried out an analysis of the collection of textbooks that had the highest number of copies sold in 2019 and 2020, named Corporal Practices, from Editora Moderna publishing company, revealing how it can be taken as one of the signs of ongoing curriculum neoliberal reforms. Finally, we alert to the emergence of a sense of school Physical Education shaped by the market and point out alternatives to teacher manuals in order to escape the current market logic.
