What is it about Australian history? Students dismiss the subject for being boring while politicians and concerned parents fret over their lack of historical knowledge. The classroom has become the battleground of the ‘history wars’, yet no-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.

CHILD & DEVELOPMENTAL PSYCHOLOGY. When children draw, what are they trying to convey? What do they see in their own work and what can we learn from it? Richard Jolley critiques the most recent studies conducted in the field, lending insight and perspective to art's roll in understanding child development. Addressing the traditional theories of drawing development, Jolley examines the key concepts of understanding and production, regarding pictures as representations, and relates this idea to children's concept of representation as a whole. Emphasizing the need to bring the study of children's drawings into mainstream child development studies, this text looks at the use of drawings in clinical settings, their noted benefits in therapeutic processes and examines their use as memory aids. Presenting up-to-date research, and pointing towards future topics of study, "Children and Pictures" is an edifying resource for parents, students, researchers, and educators in the field.

The bodies and minds of children--and the very space of children--are under assault. This is the message we receive from daily news headlines about violence, sexual abuse, exploitation, and neglect of children, and from a proliferation of books in recent years representing the domain of contemporary childhood as threatened, invaded, polluted, and "stolen" by adults. Through a series of essays that explore the global dimensions of children at risk, an international group of researchers and policymakers discuss the notion of children's rights, and in particular the claim that every child has a right to a cultural identity. Explorations of children's situations in Japan, Korea, Singapore, South Africa, England, Norway, the United States, Brazil, and Germany reveal how children's everyday lives and futures are often the stakes in contemporary battles that adults wage over definitions of cultural identity and state cultural policies. Throughout this volume, the authors address the complex and often ambiguous implications of the concept of rights. For example, it may be used to defend indigenous children from radically assimilationist or even genocidal state policies; but it may also be used to legitimate racist institutions. A substantive introduction by the editor examines global political economic frameworks for the cultural debates affecting children and traces intriguing, sometimes surprising, threads throughout the papers. In addition to the editor, the contributors are Norma Field, Marilyn Ivy, Mary John, Hae-joang Cho, Saya Shiraishi, Vivienne Wee, Pamela Reynolds, Kathleen Hall, Ruth Mandel, Manuela Carneiro da Cunha, and Njabulo Ndebele.

Now available in paperback the Handbook of Children and the Media is the first comprehensive analysis of the field for students, scholars, and policy makers. It brings together an interdisciplinary group of the best-known scholars from around the world to summarize the current scope of research on children and the media, suggest directions for future research, and underscore policy and practical implications. In addition to the `traditional' media of television, film, and advertising, `new media' such as the Internet and video games are also included. The Handbook is primarily a reference work for researchers, teachers, and students in communication, psychology, family studies, education, sociology, public policy and other related fields, but will also serve as a valuable resource for policy makers, media professionals and activists.
