Akinoglu, Orhan
Online Submission, World Applied Sciences Journal v3 n2 p168-183 2008
The aim of this study is to determine and assess how the relationships with and candidateship conditions of the European Union have reflected to the Turkish primary educational curricula for the Life Science and Social Studies which were changed in the years of 1968, 1998 and 2004. The study was performed on a qualitative basis by analyzing relevant literature and documents--mainly the 1968, 1998 and 2004 teaching curricula. After analyzing the findings of the study, it was seen that compared to the previous 1968 and 1998 curricula, there was a radical change in the 2004 Life Science and Social Studies curricula, as the backbone of primary education, with regard to their inclusion of educational norms, skills, international perspective, democratic consciousness and principles required by the globalizing world in general and the European Union in particular.
