Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The work and research mirrored in this report converge towards an affirmation of the undeniable pedagogy of religious culture, which can be taught and learned in the discipline of EMRC by addressing values and knowledge fundamental to the formation of the individual and to a new intelligibility of the world.Specifically, in the scope of PES, we worked, in an analytical and critical way, the UL3 - Freedom - referring to the 8th year of Basic and High School, with the intention of, on the one hand, sustaining for this target audience, thirsty for tools to help them understand reality, the importance of reflection on the universal concept of freedom, which is at the original core of human dignity, on the other hand, to sustain the identity of the discipline and the clear, though complementary, distinction that must exist between it and Catechesis, not always safeguarded by the EMRC Program, the approach of the books adopted and the impartial action of the teacher.
