Fall Book Group: whistling vivaldi

Do you want to join a book discussion group, but worry you don’t have the time in to read the book during the fall semester? Are you in an employee group with professional development funds and you have a few dollars left this year?

The CTEI is pleased to help!

We will hold book discussion on Claude M. Steele’s Whisting Vivaldi┬áin the upcoming fall semester. In the book Steele summarizes evidence that stereotype threat is real. He discusses short- and long-term impacts of stereotype threat. He also offers remedies to mitigate stereotype threat. In this video the author answers questions about his book.

The CTEI will purchase a few copies of the book in the fall to share. We encourage faculty to purchase their own copies- especially if they can be reimbursed for the purchase.
