AMORIM, Nathália Beatriz de Souza; PESSOA, Viviany Silva Araújo; FONSECA, Patrícia Nunes da  and  ARAUJO, Pollyana Veríssimo de. High school students' environmental perception about the care with the classroom. Rev. psicopedag. [online]. 2018, vol.35, n.107, pp. 156-167. ISSN 0103-8486.

The need for considering the environment as an element involved in the process of learning and human development motivated the present study that aimed to analyze students' perception of practices of care with the classroom. A total of 90 high school students in the city of João Pessoa-PB took part in the study, most were females (53.3%), aged 14 to 19 years (m = 16.01; dp = 1.16). The participants answered a booklet composed of four blocks for the answers to the free associations of words used for the technique of Natural Semantic Networks-NSN and a sociodemographic questionnaire. The analyzes of the answers obtained were carried out in an adapted calculation sheet, created in an Excel spreadsheet. The words that emerged from the NSN indicated an adequate perception of the terms environmental care and classroom. It is concluded that the research developed added useful elements for the understanding and definition of care with the classroom. They are, therefore, considered as indicators for the planning of projects focused on promoting the notion of responsibility for maintaining the quality of learning spaces. Although there were limitations, the present study contributes to the debate of the process of human learning and development, having focused on the construction of an ecological subject, a proposal that is linked to meaningful learning.
