The ACS Guidelines and Recommendations for Teaching High School Chemistry have been significantly revised and are now available for high school chemistry teachers and administrators. Featuring strategies and considerations for teaching high school chemistry in the 21st century to all students, the document is designed to serve as a useful resource for strengthening high school chemistry programs. This symposium has two aims: to communicate the key messages of the document and to explore how high school chemistry teachers and administration can use the guidelines to enhance program activities and leverage for resources. Copies of the ACS Guidelines and Recommendations for Teaching High School Chemistry will be available.
