Sumario: This article is about the presentation of an idea which is linked to the need of visualizing some topics related to the history of Costa Rica, in this particular case: the Patriotic Talks; all this will be made with the whole purpose of visualizing contents of great relevance for the national history of our country. In the secondary school level, the Social Studies and Civics curriculum studies historical processes ignoring important elements that are necessary to understand how was the Costa Rican idiosyncrasy created during the nineteenth century. Therefore, with this article, it is somehow demystified the idea of studying the history of the country which emphasizes in great characters (heroes) as well as the macro processes. Instead of that, the main goal is to reflect on a theme (Patriotic Talks) framed within a dynamic society that was under construction and that lived social and political processes which looked forward the consolidation of the National State. Also, with this article the authors try to rescue, from the didactic perspective, the importance of the Patriotic Talks as meeting sceneries that were dedicated to reflect and analyze about different problems that Costa Rica faced, because it pretended to emulate this type of exercise in young people to construct knowledge through the criticism and the inclusion of all the participants.
