Introduction. This article shows the results of a didactic strategy applied in an environmental management class at Instituto Tecnológico Metropolitano (ITM). Objective. Achieve critical and passionate attitudes in the students towards local environmental problems. Methodology. Group works about environmental issues, exposed in the classroom and oriented by the teacher, based on questions that create controversy. Results. The most approached issues and the most controversial were solid waste in neighborhoods and hydric contamination in local creeks, both with a 23% occurrence. Conclusions. The students demonstrated an improvement concerning their capacity of response, coherence in their argumentation and critical analysis of the environmental issues discussed. Besides, the activity generated a working environment that was very motivating and brought better attention and participation, thus bringing a higher commitment that went beyond the subject itself.

Keywords : environmental management; didactic strategy; questions in science classes; critical thinking.
