Thus, participants could enjoy their week.</span></p>

Given this, doing interviews turns out to be, for me, a mixture of sensations. On the one hand, I find it super fun to be able to understand the other’s ideologies so easily, in which the interlocutor opens up to people who are unknown to him, which leads me to point out another advantage, let’s say, is the fact that it is so easy to break the ice and establish a fluent relationship between at least two people. On the other hand, the various stages that an interview entails end up being very demanding and with the amount of work we have at the moment, we end up not giving them the due value. Also, since I am ashamed these data collection tools work like an arduous task that I always try to overcome.</span></p>

    <p class=”MsoNormal” style=”margin-bottom: 0cm; text-align: justify; line-height: 150%;”><span lang=”PT” style=”font-size: 12.0pt; line-height: 150%; font-family: ‘Times New Roman’,serif;”>In this meander, I believe that when we go to the field, we adopt an “outsider” position, since our focus is on children who are in the 1st cycle, we, being more adults, will quickly be seen as external and foreign to the context. Which is not bad in this situation, since, taking into account my perspective, children at these ages are usually quite curious and, therefore, they may be the ones who keep the first contact with us, wondering about who we are and why we are there.</span></p>
