Knowing Our Place explores the complex mindsets of young people in their search for identity within the broader society.
With responses and views from 400 young Australians in regards to ideas about belonging, identity and social and political power, Knowing Our Place is a valuable resource for parents and educators alike when tackiling issues such as multiculturalism and the 'global community'.
While the aim of the book is to identify and describe aspects of children's thinking as they struggle with their developing sense of being in the world, there are evident implications for the importance of citizenship education for young Australians.
