Abstract
Geography is an important school subject that brings pupils’ description and explanation of social, economic and/or political aspects of the changing world. It has been affirmed that the interest in a subject depends on the attitude to this subject. This study investigates Czech lower secondary school pupils’ perception of geography. The research was performed on a sample of 540 pupils from six lower secondary schools. The investigation focused on the influence of gender, grade level and favourite subject on the perception of geography in general and in four specific dimensions: Geography as a school subject, Geography and environment, Importance of geography, and Relevance of geography lessons to pupils’ lives. Results suggest that the grade level and subject popularity significantly influence the perception of geography, but gender does not. The implications for teaching practice are also presented.
