Sumario: To understand the structures and processes of identity, to define and understand the world in its many variants geographical and historical, to appropriate the identity affirming values, and in order to learn about humanity and the earth as wholes, are made necessary by and new teaching tools including the use of poetry. It is clear that without a scientific, or civic, nor history, nor geography in both sciences, could assert its epistemological foundation, nor claim that humanity strategies required to know, understand and advance human knowledge and system as a whole. We are interested in this job recovering the educational value of poetry, while from it you can magnify the historical fact as such. The poem is a vehicle that gives the hero metaphorical content while hyperbolize accomplished facts. So then, a transverse axis of this work is synthesized in this way: "to each item, a poem."
