This article discusses the methodologies used to access the implicit theories and conceptions that underlie teachers’ teaching practices, as well as the theoretical-methodological assumptions behind these approaches. The study was planned stressing the importance of inquiring into both subjectivity as a polyphonic construct and the practices inherent to different discursive genres, bearing in mind the theoretical and methodological potential of dialogic discourse analysis.
