The Reformation Era and the Making of Modernity
Lecture by eminent historian Professor Brad S. Gregory, University of Notre Dame
Kathryn Mohrmann Theatre, Armstrong Hall, 7:00 PM – Thursday, November 9
Five hundred years ago this fall, the Reformation of western Christianity broke out in Germany, in the next decades transforming religion, culture, and society across Europe. Brad S. Gregory of the University of Notre Dame is among the most important of contemporary voices addressing the meaning of the origins of Protestantism and the contemporaneous reform of the Catholic Church for the twenty-first century. His CC lecture will resume the theme of his widely acclaimed 2015 book, The Unintended Reformation: How a Religious Reformation Secularized Society. Gregory, a professor at Notre Dame and a warm, dynamic speaker, will welcome questions from the Colorado Springs and college communities. Gregory’s new book about Martin Luther, Rebel in the Ranks, will be available for purchase outside the talk.
This event is sponsored by the Paul Sheffer Memorial Fund for Roman Catholic Studies
More information about Gregory, his compelling work, and his life outside scholarship is available at ndias.nd.edu/about/contact-us/brad-gregory/

Faculty Lunch #3 featuring Tina Valtierra Tuesday 11/7
Literacy as a Human Right: General K-12 Educators as Literacy Gatekeepers

Ever wonder how to study your own pedagogy? In this talk I will share an example of using my own pedagogy as a space for action research & contributing to the scholarship in teacher education. I will then open the floor to brainstorming ways in which other CC scholars could do similar work in their disciplines.

In this particular study, I am concerned with the fact that students with disabilities are continuously denied literacy rich experiences with their non-disabled peers in K-12 settings. This talk will frame how narrow, ability-focused teacher dispositions can perpetuate low expectations and can preemptively deny students with disabilities access to meaningful literacy experiences. I will share an ongoing project that focuses on developing preservice and in-service teachers inclusive literacy dispositions through targeted instructional interventions. I will detail one instructional intervention that has been tested across the country and in the CC MAT/9th semester teacher preparation program. Over the course of four years, this intervention has proven to shift narrow, ability-orientated dispositions to broader and more inclusive conceptualizations that support students with disabilities.
