Abstract

This is a study of how historically geography was constructed for senior secondary students in Western Australia from 1917 to 1997. The results are considered in relation to three hypotheses that were largely upheld. It contributes to research internationally on the history of curriculum and particularly the history of geography as a school subject. It also constitutes a framework for investigating the history of the construction of senior secondary school geography curricula and other school subjects in Australia and overseas.
