The purpose of this study was to compare of freshmen`s cognitive frames about the `Crisis of the Earth` upon taking the Earth science I course in high school to confirm if they reflect the goal of the curriculum reasonably. Data were collected from 67 freshmen who graduated from high school. All participants were asked to express about the `Crisis of the Earth` in painting with explanation, then we picked meaningful units from paintings. We analyzed the words and frames presented in the paintings using the Semantic Network Analysis. Result are as follows. First, when both groups` (one that took the course vs. the other that did not take it) built their cognitive frames for the `crisis of the Earth`, they reasonably connected areas that are composed of the global environment and they understood that their relation was constantly changing by interacting each other. Second, when configuring a cognitive frame about the `crisis of the Earth`, both groups reflected the characteristics of interrelationship with human activities. In particular, the group that took the course of Earth Science I fully reflected the goal of the curriculum. It is suggested that students recognize the `crisis of the Earth` not only from a cosmic perspective bot also from the Earth`s interior since most of students have strongly connected it to the phenomenon of the Earth`s interior rather than the Earth`s outward symptoms. In addition, it is recommended that the Earth science curriculum put more emphasis on understanding the importance of problem-solving of the Earth`s crisis.
