Geographic education in recent years has undergone major transformations in school curricula, moving from a memorization practice to a critical reflection based on the students’ local reality. This is included in official teaching documents. On the other hand, the application of this new approach to applicability problems, largely due to the lack of elements focused on teaching resources that facilitate this process or the training of professionalized teachers before this conceptual change. This is present in the Brazilian semi-arid region, with the insertion of coexistence contextualized with the semi-arid region in the quest to work on education along the lines of applicability of the student’s knowledge. That said, we have such an objective here, providing some reflections to reach such a path, an active and participatory teaching.
