At its spring 2013 meeting, the Society Committee on Education of the American Chemical Society formed a task force to explore the role of ACS in supporting teachers of chemistry as they move forward with implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards. Representatives of the task force will identify potential activities using ACS Education Resources and demonstrate how they relate to disciplinary core ideas, practices, and cross cutting concepts as well as how they help students move towards an understanding of the performance expectations.
