¿Qué transformación persigue esta iniciativa?
The goal of the SVGCC was to collaborate with the Ministry of Education in an effort: 1. To share best practices in literacy instruction in order to support a more direct approach to addressing adolescent learning needs. 2. To provide strategies that help to develop critical thinking skills among adolescent learners. 3. To further expose teachers to quality instruction that focuses on active learning in the secondary and tertiary classroom. 4. To provide strategies that support inclusive learning in the secondary and tertiary classroom And so, the SVGCC and the Ministry of Education sought to intensify the thrust toward quality instructional practice at the secondary level.

¿Qué política / práctica se ha puesto en marcha para lograr este cambio?
The St. Vincent and the Grenadines Community College (SVGCC) hosted a conference that offered secondary school and tertiary level teachers professional development on In-class Literacy Instruction for adolescent learners. This professional development was offered in the form of a 3 day conference. The slated dates of the conference were the 12-14 November, 2014. Our target audience comprised teachers from secondary schools in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. To maximize the possible effectiveness of the conference, we invited a total of four teachers from each secondary school to participate in the conference.

¿Qué evidencia existe para demostrar que esta intervención está teniendo el resultado deseado?
The impact of the cooperation has been demonstrated in the following ways: a. Greater collaboration between the Division of Teacher Education (DTE) of the SVGCC and the Ministry of Education. Representatives from the Ministry of Education and the DTE have been able to observe the lesson delivery in the classes of some of the teachers who participated in the conference. Although for several reasons, we were unable to visit all of the teacher-participants, we were able to collaborate and provide feedback to both the teachers and the Ministry of Education on the quality of instruction offered by the teachers exposed to the professional development. b. Greater improvement in teachers’ instructional practices and stronger collegiality among teachers within their respective schools and among other secondary and tertiary institutions. Feedback from principals of the participating schools indicated that they witnessed greater collaboration between the teachers who participated in the training. They also noted that the teachers made more concerted efforts to incorporate some of the activities that they learnt, especially in the critical thinking and the active learning sessions, in their classes.
