In this workshop we will deal with the preparation of teaching materials for language programs in contexts of indigenous school education. We will begin with the presentation of some basic principles to be observed in projects that propose the preparation of such materials. Next, we will deal with two specific cases: materials for second language teaching and literacy materials. We will study some of the learning theories and teaching methodologies commonly used to justify the models found in textbooks for these two purposes. We will also see examples of materials based on the theories and practices presented, and discuss the limitations of their uses in indigenous school education contexts.
