Education happens in many spheres of life, since there are numerous social structures of knowledge and transfer of knowledge within a society and its culture. This shows that education is done in the dynamics of life itself, and evolves in every human being. In this sense, the teaching of Geography should provide the student with elements enabling the reading of reality, so that the instrumentalizes for understanding the dynamics of geographic space, the cultural, economic and political, and social practices that construct and make this space. Thus, it is essential that the teaching of Geography build Reflections on Culture and Popular Culture, and offer theoretical and practical bases for understanding the role played by culture in the formation of geographical space. Besides these factors, the teaching of geography must prepare students to recognize the link between local and global, and the global is present on site, and that the expression of this relationship has significance for the life of every individual, and understand that Popular Culture as a social movement can exert significant influence to the geographical space. As a result of intense changes occurring in society, with the evolution of the capitalist mode of production, opened a debate on the position of the front of the Popular Culture reflections of the globalization process. On this basis, it is proposed to understand the role played by geography in the construction of a reflection on Popular Culture from an examination of the proposal of the National Curriculum Parameters (PCN's) to cross-cutting themes in the teaching of geography in public schools and private Catalan (GO). To conduct the research was conducted a literature review on the subject. The field research was conducted m two schools, a state public: State College "Abrahão André," and the other private schools: the Nacional College. Both were selected for study because of developing educational projects related to popular culture, in Catalão (GO). Interviews were conducted with teachers of Geography and coordinators, and questionnaires with students. The outline of the research was established after the fact and circumstances presented in schools. It was observed that both schools develop teaching practices related to culture in other forms of education such as school and key I. It was found that the projects conducted on Popular Culture and approaches built environment in the classroom, facilitated the development of student learning in relation to its culture, but also enabled the understanding of the implications on the dynamics of geographic space. It was observed that the teaching of geography can help this process. Moreover, they realized the difficulties encountered in implementing the projects in the school context, specifically in public school, and how it relates to social and economic structure that influences directly the education.
