Goal of the essay is to show that it is useful for geography education to keep in touch with its history. All in all, recent geography is estimated positively by male and female students, with the boys giving an even more positive estimation than the girls. In former times, geography used to be an unpopular subject, as an extensive investigation of interests from the beginning of the 20th century shows. It has been forgotten that early representatives of the older didactics of geography used to have very clear conceptions of gender differences, which can be reduced to the statement that girls were more emotional and boys more rational. Comparing the former conceptions with results of today's empirical research, an astounding correspondence can be detected which still has to be explained. If the differences are persistent, the urgent question is how to deal with these differences. One of the recommendations is to be considerate of the differences, but to aim at an equalisation, because boys and girls live in the same world with the same phenomena. - (IfL)
