Sessions limited to 15 people. Register for one of the three sessions. Buy your own book. Connect with your computer and phone.

Have you wanted to read Whistling Vivaldi by Claude Steele but haven't had time? Have you read the book and want to discuss how to use some of the strategies in your own school or community?

Join us! Grab a cup of coffee or tea, connect with your computer to see the PowerPoint presentation, and call on your phone for audio. Take this opportunity to chat with others around the country on what the book means and how to use it to address race and racism.


  • Understand key concepts of "social identity" and "stereotype threat."
  • Explore the research on stereotype threats and what it means for educators and CTE programs.
  • Share strategies that you can use in your classroom, school, or community that can "inoculate" students against stereotype threat.

Please register for only one session. All sessions will have similar format and discussion questions. Registration for each session will close when it reaches 15. If a session is filled, then you will be prompted to register for another session or to request to be placed on a wait list.

If there is space available, you will receive a confirmation email with instructions for participation.

Before the session, please read Whistling Vivaldi and come prepared for a lively discussion with your colleagues across the country!
