OLIVEIRA, Francismara Neves de and MACEDO, Lino de. Resilience and lack of school success: a reflection about learning support rooms. Estud. pesqui. psicol. [online]. 2011, vol.11, n.3, pp. 983-1004. ISSN 1808-4281.
This study comprises resilience and school learning difficulties. Objective is to analyze the meaning of 30 students, 8 teachers, and the one present in normative documents of the learning support room. We have selected the study of multiple cases, of a descriptive research. In addition to the observation of support rooms' activities, we carried out interviews and document analyses. The data were collected within 2 months, 8 hours a week, 4 hours for each state school in Londrina-PR. The results indicate that the significations of students and teachers correspond to those found in documents, in which students and their families are laid the blame for learning deficiencies. The lack of more resilient learning strategies are related to the procedures of students in learning situations, the work of support rooms and methodological propositions whose are not resilience promoting in this context.
