SUMMARY:

This thesis presents, as its research theme, the representations of Portuguese as a mother tongue and its teaching in the perspective of freshmen and seniors from a Language and Literature Undergraduation Course. Considering this theme, the guiding questions of this study were: what representations of their mother tongue and its teaching do undergraduate students from Language and Literature Undergraduation Course, especially the ones from Universidade do Estado de Minas Gerais UEMG - have? When analyzing the discourse of those students (freshmen and seniors), is it possible to notice similarities and differences in the representations related to the mother tongue teaching? Is there a correlation between the speech of those students and the teaching principles and professional profiles outlined in the official Curriculum Guidelines for teaching Portuguese as a native language? Based on these research questions, the general objective of this study was to analyze the discourse of incoming and concluding students from the undergraduate courses of Languages located in Ibirité and Divinópolis, two campi of Universidade do Estado de Minas Gerais UEMG - aiming at highlighting the representations of their mother tongue and its teaching. In order to achieve this goal, data collection was carried out through a questionnaire applied in person. This instrument consisted of open questions that covered the following points: a) the reasons that led to the choice of the course; b) the knowledge that Languages students, who are also future teachers of their mother tongue should have; c) questions related to the ways in which their relationship with the Language and Literature Undergraduation Course was built; d) concept of mother tongue; and, e) aspects related to the school trajectory in basic education. The research was answered by 43 incoming and 35 concluding students. In total, 78 students answered the questionnaire. The data analysis and the theoretical foundation, were based on Systemic-Functional Linguistics theory (HALLIDAY, 1979; HALLIDAY and MATTHIESSEN, 2004; EGGINS, 2004), and on Brazilian authors, mainly Fuzer and Cabral (2014) and Silva (2012, 2016), who also developed studies based on this same theory. The Evaluative and Ideation Systems (MARTIN and ROSE, 2007) supported the analysis, as well as the following official documents: Parâmetros Curriculares Nacionais (PCNs) [National Curriculum Parameters], Base Nacional Comum Curricular (BNCC) [Common National Curricular Base], Diretrizes Curriculares para os Cursos de Letras (DCNs) [Curricular Guidelines for Language and Literature Undergraduation Course] and Projetos Pedagógicos Curriculares (PPC) [Pedagogical Projects of Language and Literature Undergraduation Course] from UEMG Divinópolis and Ibirité. The Social Representations theory, proposed by the Social Psychology researchers (MOSCOVICI, 2003; 2011; JODELET, 2001) also contributed to the data analysis, as were the conceptions about the mother tongue and its teaching over the last decades. Considering the interpretative character of this research, the methodology adopted was anchored in the qualitative approach. The results showed that the undergraduate students who participated in this study highlight, in their speeches, the following representations about the concept of language and its teaching: a) language as an object of affection; b) language as a complex object; c) teaching language means teaching Normative Grammar; d) teaching language means articulating technical-academic knowledge with teaching practices of basic education; and, e) teacher as a central axis in language teaching. In general, even though there is, in students’ speech, a representation of language and teaching that points to the teaching of Normative Grammar, it is also noticeable that their trajectory in Language and Literature Undergraduation Course contributed significantly to change and expand that representation. The students’ speech demonstrated the need for amore articulated teaching with the practice and use of the language. Also, in case of senior students, their excerpts demonstrated the need for a teaching that is integrated with regular schools. Their speech showed language in all its complexity. However, the data points out that, although there have been changes in perception related to the concept of language and its teaching during the course, there is, on the part of the senior students, an idea of teaching that points to the structure of the language. This may justify, to a certain extent, the speech of freshmen, who afirm that, in basic education, Portuguese classes are geared to the teaching of rules. The panorama exposed by this thesis may contribute for the university to reevaluate the way that pedagogical practices developed in its courses are being absorbed and disseminated among the academic community. Another important point that this thesis highlighted was the need for more articulation between science and society, since it was made clear through the data collected in this research, that the practices of language teaching undertaken today are still below that proposed by the new linguistic trends. In addition to bringing out the students' representations of language and teaching, this study contributed for the researcher’s self-reflection and can also offer other professionals a space for reflection, reinforcing the need for more efforts directed to a more efficient and effective communication between science / academia and society about what is believed to be language and language teaching.
