ABSTRACT

This study analyzed the structural characteristics of the high school travel geography achievement standards in the 2015 revised curriculum of South Korea. The achievement standards of the travel geography curriculum was analyzed using the KrKwic, which is a sematic analytic software that processes Korean linguistic markers. The results of this study show that the keyword travel had a semantic pattern that linked geographic concepts and career education, which was one of the problems faced by the earlier curriculum. This is considered a positive pattern because it implies that the new travel geography curriculum greatly reflect the subject’s educational objectives. This study proposes to strengthen learners’ understanding of travel geography by creating more links between travel to other target geographic and educational concepts. These changes in learners and travel geography curriculum are expected to contribute to strengthen the identity of travel geography.
