District 97 Book Club: "Whistling Vivaldi"

District 97 Families:

Please join us in reading our latest selection, "Whistling Vivaldi." Learn the myriad ways that threats to our identities exert a powerful stranglehold on our individual and collective psyche by reading this powerful text by Claude M. Steele. In it, he shares stories to describe his research on stereotype threat; and most importantly, he provides concrete interventions we can put in place to make a genuine difference in our schools.

After you pick up your book (or download it on your favorite reading device), please follow us on Twitter (@d97bookclub) so you won't miss the opportunity to discuss the book together. 

As always, thank you for fighting for what's right!

Sincerely, 

Dr. Carol L. Kelley
Superintendent
