Contextualisation et supports pédagogiques : étude de deux outils pour une éducation à l'environnement en contexte guadeloupéen

Abstract : The ecological context of Guadeloupe should be an interesting medium for the environmental education at school. The use of contextual documents, inspired by the local environment, seems to be a relevant choice for teachers. Indeed, when the context of the children and the didactic situation are different, what we will call "context effects" may occur. As part of this study, two books edited by the National Forestry Office have been selected as media analysis tools of contextualization. To characterize the contextualization process and identify some potential context effects in those selected tools, two complementary objects have been studied: the Ti Forestié notebooks on the one hand, interviews with primary school teachers on the other hand. Although the interviewed teachers had shown the desire of using the local environment for their educational work, the proposed tools reveal some potential context effects, not necessarily related to publishing criteria. These context effects and the contextualization process revealed in this study are not necessarily perceived by the teachers, regardless of their competences. Then, this study raises the question of the didactic tools analysis and the need to adapt the teaching materials to the teaching contexts. Finally, it calls for a project based learning, around specific themes related to the local natural environment and culture. This approach helps break down barriers between disciplines, to make more sense and learning easier: it is shown by the manifest motivation of the schoolchildren in this kind of pedagogy.
