Summary

"Politicians and parents often despair that Australian children don't know their own history. The classroom has become the battleground of the 'history wars'. Yet no-one ever askes the children what they think about Australian history and what they like -- or don't about learning it. Through interviews with around 250 Australian students from different kinds of schools, Anna Clark asks how teachers and students teach and learn Australian history. This book is a lively and often surprising read that throws all kinds of chanllenges to students, teachers and indeed, politicians."--Provide by publisher.
