PINEDA-ALFONSO, José A.  and  GARCIA-PEREZ, Francisco F.. Conflict and Interaction: Teachers and Students in the Teaching Process in a Secondary School Classroom. RMIE [online]. 2016, vol.21, n.71, pp.1073-1091. ISSN 1405-6666.

This research analyzes the complex relations between a secondary school teacher and his students in a social science class. An examination is made of a more reflective teaching practice as a strategy to overcome confrontation between student culture and school culture, which is represented by the teacher. By experimenting with a curriculum project on conflict and interaction and using qualitative methodology, evidence was obtained in relation to the progress of teachers' professional development in three dimensions: the conception of scholastic content, the use of active teaching methodology, and the reformulation of professional identity as a function of a new type of relationships in the classroom.
