Abstract

The paper describes the position of geography within the field of school disciplines from grade 1 to 12 and details the subject's objectives in the syllabi. Syllabi as well as textbooks reflect the different scientific approaches in multicultural Switzerland. In German-speaking Switzerland, school-geography is organized along the structure of scientific geography. The cognitive paradigme predominates by clarifying geographical facts, establishing the context and solving problems. In French-speaking Switzerland, school-geography is being regarded as social geography. Syllabi and textsbooks comply with constructivist concepts and key questions. Unsolved problems of Swiss geography education are the neglect of the area over decades and the inadequate cooperation between the science of geography and geography education. - (IFL)
