SUMMARY:

Taking into consideration private English schools in the city of Belo Horizonte, this research has had as its main objective to investigate the existence, in this context, of critical teaching possibilities through the usage of course books and considering the post method condition. There is a massive use of course books within private English schools and understanding how English teachers deal with and relate to this material, associated with approaches and methods used inside the classroom, has been fundamental to analyse, if there are, critical teaching possibilities. As the theoretical background for this dissertation the following topics were considered: Critical Applied Linguistics (PENNYCOOK, 1998, 2001, 2004, 2006, 2010), Critical Pedagogy (FREIRE, 2000, 2014a, 2014b), the Post Method condition (KUMARAVADIVELU, 1994, 2001, 2003, 2004, 2006) and theories regarding course books (CHOPIN, 2004, 2009; SILVA, 2016, 2020, TOMLINSON, 2006). To reach the outlined objectives for this investigation, interviews have been made with fifteen English teachers, from private language schools in Belo Horizonte, in which teachers were requested to talk about their practices inside the classroom, as well as to describe how they would use a specific course book lesson in class. To analyse the assembled data obtained during the interviews, Content Analysis (BARDIN, 2016) has been used, observing elements which could relate to the theoretical background considered for the research. Through the interpretation of the answers given by the interviewed teachers, it has been possible to establish that there is a movement from teachers to critical possibilities, since they seem to demonstrate interest in the topic, believe in the importance of developing critical skills in students and also, they seem themselves as educators. However, it has been noticed that there is a theoretical unfamiliarity about what critical pedagogy is and also the methods and approaches used by these teachers, as well as a reliance on the course book, from the schools, and as a consequence, from the teachers.
