This paper presents an overview of the United States and Turkish geographic education at the high school level in terms of geography curricula, teaching methods, teaching materials, and assessments. Both countries’ education systems were reviewed and investigated starting from the begining of 20th century. Turkish high schools are more complex and developed in terms of time allocation, richness of content, and course numbers. At the same time, the instability of the political system of Turkish has caused fluctuation in geography curricula over time. The geopolitics of the country has played a big role in geography education as well. On the contrary, even though geography has been neglected in United States schools for years, there are quite big effort to increase geographic literacy in these years.
