Sumario: This article is part of a broader research which was developed as a requirement to obtain the degree of licenciate in Education Sciences with emphasis in Social Studies Didactis. The study had the aim of characterizing pedagogical practices at the Centro de Formación Juvenil Zurquí, a youth jail located in San Luis de Santo Domingo de Heredia, by means of a qualitative research. In other words, its objective was to study the specific learning conditions in that environment, the what, how and why of education, the learning individuals, the learning process characteristics within a closed penitentiary system, and finally, it questions the conditions that characterize and differentiate this center from other education centers. The aggregated value of this work is that in rebuilding the teaching practice and remaking it theoretically, applying a qualitative research approach, the teacher becomes a researcher of his own education practice; besides, he or she gets involved in curriculum research and institutional dynamics; that implies an active interaction between the researching teacher and his (her) informants.
