Expanding horizons
‘Eastern Europe’ in the curricular plans of the Land Brandenburg

Viola Tomaszek

Deutsche Fassung


The initial outline plans drawn up in Brandenburg after the reestablishment of the federal Länder in the eastern part of the new Federal Republic of Germany reflected the efforts made to treat Brandenburg and the Federal Republic as part of Europe as a whole for purposes of social scientific instruction. The curricular specifications that are part of the second generation of teaching plans in use since 2002 pay even more attention to the European Union and its eastern enlargement, and make these subjects compulsory parts of the curriculum.
