Selected Bioethical Issues in Japanese and German Textbooks of Biology for Lower Secondary Schools

Journal of Moral Education 26 (4):473-489 (1997)

Abstract Some aspects of the coverage of bioethical issues in Japanese (11) and German (10 series) biology textbooks for lower secondary school have been investigated, concentrating on the treatment of environmental issues. It was found that German textbooks devote more space to these problems than the Japanese ones and that the style of presentation in German books is aimed at appealing to the emotions of the pupils, whereas that of the Japanese ones is a more traditional scientific one. The inclusion of ethical view points in biology teaching is discussed in this context
