Professional Profile:

It is expected of a licensed in chemistry formed by the UFRJ-Macaé campus, solid knowledge of theories and explanatory models of chemistry, ability to establish the relations of these with the transformation phenomena of the subject considering the characteristics of their future students. It is also expected that it has been awakened to the process of critical and transformative reflection on their classroom practice, which has adequate autonomy to achieve the objectives of the teaching defined by the competencies (state, municipality and school) and also, of permanent updating on the scientific advances of chemistry and progress in education in chemistry, able to act as educators and subjects of the reality of Brazilian basic education.

The student is invited from the first period to have an involvement in the "academic-scientific-cultural activities" (ACC) and the "chemical discipline in school", distributed by the ten periods of the course. With the discipline "chemical at school", licensing comes in contact with the School of Basic Education since the first period of the course, activity that is oriented in a manner integrated by teachers of the Institute of Chemistry and the Faculty of Education. In the last periods, through the disciplines "instrumentation for the chemistry of daily life", "laboratory for the production and evaluation of teaching materials for chemical teaching", "monitoring" and "teaching practice" and the final project of Course, activities developed interdisciplinarily, it is sought for the student to acquire the ability to build a converging and unified knowledge among the areas of knowledge of chemistry and other areas.

The curricular matrix of the course is organized in topics related to the research of chemistry teaching, participation in seminars, external visits to schools and museums, preparation of material and didactic experiments, among others. The pedagogical nucleus offers activities oriented in the form of performance with teachers and high school students, either in the regency of classes, or in the form of other participation activities. In addition, there is a comprehensive formation in all the basic areas of chemistry, mathematics and physics, according to curricular guidelines for the chemistry degree course: "Licensing in chemistry should have general, but solid and comprehensive training in contents of Several fields of chemistry, preparation appropriate to the pedagogical application of knowledge and experiences in chemistry and related areas in the professional performance of knowledge as an educator in fundamental and middle education.
