Knowing Our Place

Children Talking about Power, Identity and Citizenship

By Judith Gill, Sue Howard

Knowing Our Place examines the way in which children view their world. It poses questions of citizenship and how children come to a sense of belonging in their community of nation, family, classroom, and school. The book describes and analyzes the responses of more than 400 children to a series of open-ended questions. While the fundamental aim of the book is to identify and describe aspects of children's thinking as they grapple with their developing sense of being in the world, there are evident implications for the project of citizenship education.
