The updated ACS Guidelines and Recommendations for Teaching Middle and High School Chemistry were recently released. The document has been edited and expanded from the 2012 Guidelines and Recommendations to now include information valuable to administrators and middle school teachers. Supporting middle school instructors is important for setting a strong foundation for students and helping them begin making connections between all science courses.
The downloadable document offers advice for organizing the science classroom, support with navigating the core chemistry concepts, and direction for using best practices to support student learning. Important safety information is embedded throughout the document.
Administrators, curriculum directors, middle school science teachers and high school chemistry instructors will find a wealth of information within the text. Please share this information with your science education networks.
