Book Club News: Discussion of Ungifted Starts Next Week!

Ungifted CoverSeveral weeks ago, we announced the next pick for the Storytime Undeground Book Club: Scott Barry Kaufman’s Ungifted: Intelligence Redefined: The Truth About Talent, Practice, Creativity, and the Many Paths to Greatness. The time to discuss this title is rapidly approaching; if you want to participate, make plans to read/skim/research the book this week. Discussion will proceed as follows:

  • Asynchronous discussion will begin on Monday, November 11 and continue through Friday, November 15 on the Storytime Underground Facebook Group. A question will be posted there each morning, and anyone interested in participating in the discussion can join in there.
  • Live discussion will take place the evening of Thursday, November 14 on Twitter. We’ll plan to start discussion using the hashtag #sucogsci at 9 p.m. Eastern / 8 p.m. Central / 7 p.m. Mountain / 6 p.m. Pacific. The live discussion will last an hour, and a record of the Twitter chat will be posted to the Storytime Underground site after the discussion.

If you’re curious what your guerrilla colleagues have to say about this title but haven’t read the book/don’t want to chime in yourself, feel free to lurk. Participation does not factor into your grade. You all get gold stars!
