Touted as the most successful NSF-funded project published, Chemistry in the Community (ChemCom) by the American Chemical Society (ACS) offers a meaningful and memorable chemistry program for all levels of high school students. ChemCom covers traditional chemistry topics within the context of societal issues and real-world scenarios. Centered on decision-making activities where students are responsible for generating data in an investigating, analyzing that data and then applying their chemistry knowledge to solve the presented problem. The text is intensively laboratory-based, with all 39 of the investigations integrated within the text, not separate from the reading. With the ChemCom program, students learn more organic and biochemistry, more environmental and industrial chemistry, and more on the particulate nature of matter than other textbooks all within the relevance of solving problems that arise in everyday life. Meticulously updated to meet the needs of today's teachers and students, the new sixth edition of ChemCom adheres to the new science framework as well as the forthcoming next generation of science standards. Incorporating advances in learning and cognitive sciences, ChemCom’s wide-ranging coverage builds upon the concepts and principles found in the National Science Education Standards. Correlations are available showing how closely aligned ChemCom is to these and other state standards ChemCom Frequently Asked Questions The following link takes you to frequently asked questions about the high school chemistry textbook, Chemistry in the Community.

Change in education is too often a process which enthusiasts, ranging from top policy makers to groups of teachers, plan and drive forward, but in which they all find unexpected pitfalls. Every innovation depends on the commitment of schools and teachers to make it work. But often that commitment is lacking, or is less than total, or it turns to fustration as events develop. This book is based on a set of stories from teachers and education professionals in thirteen OECD countries. Twenty-three case studies of educational innovation in science, mathematics and technology have involved school teachers, inspectors, academics (both subject specialists and educational researchers), policy makers and advisors. The case studies come from Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan, the Netherlands, Norway, Scotland, Spain, Switzerland and the USA. Drawing on this rich variety of material the authors concentrate on the origins and purposes of innovation within and across the science, mathematics and technology curricula. They consider the conceptions of the three subjects, along with issues of teaching, learning and assessment, and explore the involvement of both teachers and students. They reflect on the various strategies adopted to cope with or bring about change, and offer valuable insights to advisors, developers, policy makers and practitioners, both in schools and outside.
