High School Chemistry Curriculum Review and Input Opportunity
We are in a high school chemistry curriculum adoption process, as our current materials need to be updated. We have convened a group of educators and specialists to review materials for high school chemistry, typically taught to 10th grade students, for us to consider for the 2022-2023 school year and beyond. The top two materials under final consideration are listed below:
- STEMscopes Chemistry (California version with integrated earth and space sciences)
- OpenSciEd Chemistry (an open educational resource)
Opportunity to View the Curriculum
We would like to invite you to watch the videos to learn more about the shifts in science education, the instructional materials adoption process, and the two materials that were piloted this year.
