SEXUALITY IN SCHOOL: A DISCUSSION OF THE WORKSHOPS “ADOLESCENTS AND YOUTHS FOR PEER EDUCATION”
Keywords:pedagogical workshops, sexuality, school, discourse analysis, pedagogical discourse
This study aimed to analyze the discursivity of the proposal in the pedagogical workshops of sexualities and reproductive health: adolescents and young people for peer education, included in the Health and Prevention in Schools Project (SPE). The workshops contain pedagogical texts with suggestions so that educators can build on and build with students new ways of relating to themselves and to others. There are eight issues in total. In the process of discursive analysis of these fascicles, the guidelines of the pedagogical workshops present in only three of the fascicles were prioritized, since they deal more directly with the issue of sexuality. They are: Sexuality and Reproductive Health; Prevention of STDs, HIV and AIDS and Sexual Diversity. The research was grounded on the theoretical and methodological assumptions of Discourse Analysis (DA) conceived from Pêcheux (1997; 2002) and the theory of Pedagogical Discourse by Orlandi (1983; 2015). The results reveal that the type of discursivity of the texts in the analyzed pedagogical workshops of the SPE is informative. They also reveal that in the texts of the pedagogical workshops, spaces were not found for the students to express their doubts, concerns, anxieties and uncertainties about sex and sexuality experienced in their singularity. However, the workshops point to reflections for students to "take care" of their health, adopting preventive and protective measures in their daily lives and in their context of life to promote their sexual and reproductive health.
