Geography Instruction in the Decisions of Tebliğler Journal Between the Years of 1939-1942 in Turkey

Vedat Şahin


Tebliğler Journal has been published continuously since January 1939 and has worked as a media organ where all the regulations carried out by the Ministry of National Education are found. The topics relating to geography that are published here are significant in terms of understanding geography inclinations and instruction.  This study reviewed all issues of Tebliğler Journal that were published between 1939 and 1942, examined the sections relating to geography found in these issues, and aimed, when necessary, to categorize and group the topics and thus make an understandable order. In this period, topics relating to especially textbooks and syllabi were found heavily in Tebliğler Journal. However, space was allocated to many matters such as inaccurate information found in geography textbooks and geography books and syllabi to be studied in the types of schools to be opened. In this framework, it is seen that geography classes in all types of schools generally took place in one hour, and in some cases two hours, each week. Medium atlases were used for middle schools and large atlases for high schools in addition to the geography courses at the schools.
