Using funding from the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Title III, Project Introspection produced a variety of materials on various aspects of the history and culture of the U.S. Virgin Islands. The goal "to coordinate units of work on the Virgin Islands and Caribbean from all available sources had a two-fold objective: 1) to discover and reproduce such material for instruction, and 2) to provide a medium for wide dissemination of this material for the benefit of all Virgin Islands school children and ultimately the entire community."

Titles in the Project Introspection series include:

Beautiful Inkberry Tree: A Christmas Story for Young Virgin Islanders

Brief Historical Notes on Schools of the Virgin Islands

European and African Influences on the Culture of the Virgin Islands

Footsteps to Follow

Historical Account of the Purchase and Transfer of the Danish West Indies

Hurricanes and Holidays: Supplication Day; Local Thanksgiving
