About this product
- DescriptionWhat is it about Australian history? Students dismiss the subject for being boring while politicians and concerned parents fret over their lack of historical kwledge. The classroom has become the battleground of the 'history wars', yet -one ever asks 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 a wide variety 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 challenges to students, teachers and indeed, politicians.
