The Virgin Islands Institute for STEM Education Research and Practice (VI-ISERP) supports the VI Department of Education in its efforts to implement Common Core State Standards (CCSS) and Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into the curriculum of all middle and high schools in the Territory. At the heart of this effort is the Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) which support research based pedagogical approaches and techniques emphasizing inquiry-based learning in support of NGSS and CCSS.
One way this is accomplished is through the Summer Institutes where local STEM experts can support teachers as PLCs serve as a platform for reflection on practices.
