SANTOS, Manoel Antônio dos et al. Operative group with elementary education teachers: integrating thoughts, feelings and action. Rev. SPAGESP [online]. 2016, vol.17, n.1, pp.39-50. ISSN 1677-2970.

The aim of this study is to present a report regarding coordination experience from an operative group conducted with elementary school teachers from a public school in a city in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. On average, 25 teachers participated in the group meetings, with a weekly frequency and duration of one hour. The group was open and conducted during the Collective Pedagogical Work Class meetings. Results show that the group intervention strategy allowed addressing participants' subjective and inter-subjective dimensions. Teachers valued the construction of a shared space where it was possible to explain the difficulties that emerged in everyday school life. It was observed that the group device highly favours the learning process, which strengthens participants' willingness to reflect on possible alternative behaviours, to be adopted in response to issues and dilemmas present on each teacher's trajectory.

Keywords : operative group; school; teacher attitudes; teacher-student interaction; interpersonal relationships.
