Whistling Vivaldi: 

How Stereotypes Affect Us and What We Can Do

(Issues of Our Times)

 by Claude Steele
W. W. Norton & Company, April 2011

Claude Steele is currently the I. James Quillen Dean for the School of Education at Stanford University. William Bowen wrote "this is an intellectual odyssey of the first order--- a true tour de force." The UW System Office of Professional Instructional Development (OPID) is encouraging each campus to offer a book club on this famous book to promote sensitive and serious dialogue about stereotype bias regarding our students---the set of expectations or assumptions we may have about our students and how those pervasive stereotypes can influence behavior and performance of both teacher and student. For those interested in inclusive excellence issues, this will be a great book club!

Each CETL Book Club member receives a complimentary copy of the featured book as well as engaging conversation with other interested colleagues. All educators, faculty and staff of all ranks, are welcome and encouraged to join a book club.

CETL requests that each member attend all scheduled meetings for the book club. At the conclusion of the book club, their reflections on the value of the book, as well as the book club experience, will be shared in the upcoming issue of the CETL Connections Newsletter.
