Here are a few great resources for teaching chemistry through Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Visit our website often for more resources like these!
In this resource, high school educators will find desired outcomes, or what students should be able to demonstrate knowledge of to be proficient in chemical reactions. Also included are the science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts that the learning goals are derived from.
The American Chemical Society breaks down all of the chemistry alignments in NGSS for middle school in this resource.
They also provide a great video presentation on aligning NGSS at the middle school level and a helpful explanation to better understand the use of the science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts.
In this interview with California high school chemistry teachers, the idea of covering comprehensive content while redesigning classes to be more investigative and/or problem-based is discussed.
This document makes a side by side comparison of NGSS Chemistry and AP Chemistry.
Here is a video of what a high school chemistry course based on NGSS might look like.
