Abstract [en]


Language is an important indicator of the interdisciplinarity of a certain subject. Therefore this study evaluates the use of central geographical words and concepts, by teachers and students, in seven communal, non-optional subjects in a Swedish upper secondary school. This study provides results after observations of seven subjects on seven occasions, at one upper secondary school. This study shows that by a method of observation, central geographical concepts were used by teachers and students at various extents. Furthermore, the observations provide results of the concept use by over 100 students and 12 teachers. It provides information about statistical evidence that fewer students enroll in Geography studies, it also shows that the decrease in girls are more severe than the decrease in boys. Combined the statistics and observations will show in what way geographical concepts are used in other subjects at a school in upper secondary school in Sweden. Lastly, it provides a base for further studies about the interdisciplinarity of geography as a subject.
