Description

Professor Shuttleworth is an Assistant Professor and Chair of Adolescent Education at Long Island University, Brooklyn. Prior to this position, his most recent full-time appointment was as a Lecturer at Columbia University’s Department of History. He has also held full-time appointments at The Program in Social Studies, Teachers College, Columbia University, where he was an Instructor and Coordinator of Pre-service Education. Before entering higher education, he taught United States history and world history for nine years in Northern California. While a secondary teacher, he was named a finalist for the California Teacher of the Year distinction (California Department of Education), and he studied education in Japan on a Fulbright Memorial Fellowship. His research interests include: 1) broadening the conceptualization of citizenship education to include responsibilities for sustainable living (an “ecological citizenship”), 2) extending social issues education theory to classroom instruction about sustainable living, and 3) extending notions of citizenship education to topics like the public’s perception of students’ civic knowledge, difficulties discussing slavery, and ‘official knowledge’ as understood by Newcomer students.
