The astronomy teaching is usually excessively technical and dissociated from the human aspect that feeds the great interest and curiosity that those themes arise. In this work we present a proposal aiming to contribute to revert such a picture. For that purpose we choose as opening issues the different views of the Universe: naïve, autochthon, and scientific. We develop practices, instructional materials and texts to make the adoption of a humanistic approach feasible to the astronomy teaching at the high school level. We applied our proposal in an in-service teacher’s training course and the receptivity and results were very stimulating.
