"This engaging, accessible book features narratives written by teachers who...decided to try something new. The teachers' insightful stories, combined with the editors' practical recommendations, leave no doubt that ambitious teaching is an arduous journey with changing itineraries and destinations"---Elizabeth Anne Washington professor oil social studies education, University of Florida

"Grant and Gradwell have compiled a series of powerful cases of ambitious teaching that highlight the challenging, complex, and messy world of working in a high stakes testing environment This book clearly highlights how wary it is to move away from teaching to the test but how rewarding and powerful that decision can be".---Stephanie Van Hover. associate professor of social studies education, University of Virginia.

"In this lively and honest book. Grant and Gradwell breathe life into the concept of `ambitious teaching' and then pass the pen to eight teachers who describe in specific detail how they learned to use important questions and inquiry to improve the quality of learning in their classrooms. This is an important book for social studies educators who recognize that we need to move away from content without questions and teaching without meaningful inquiry."---Diana Hess professor of curriculum and instruction.
