– Level 2: they are those people with basic alfabetizao, obtain to read only short texts, but they have difficulties to extract information on the text. – Level 3: it is that call of full alfabetizao, where it approaches the people who possess full domain in the reading, writing, of the numbers and others. 5 CITIZENSHIP Citizenship is to substitute I for we, undressing of the egoism practising the engineering of the hope in the construction of bridges that lead to social justice.
