Glencoe Science Modules: Physical Science, Chemistry
Grade Levels: 6-8
Glencoe Science: Chemistry, a module in the Glencoe Science 15 book series, provides students with accurate and comprehensive coverage of middle school National Science Education Standards. Concepts are explained in a clear, concise manner, and are integrated with a wide range of hands-on experiences, critical thinking opportunities, real-world applications, and connections to other sciences and to non-science areas of the curriculum. Co-authored by National Geographic, unparalleled graphics reinforce key concepts. A broad array of print and technology resources help differentiate and accommodate all learners. The modular approach allows you to mix and match books to meet your specific curriculum needs.

Additional Details & Resources
- Research Base for Chemistry and Physics
This article shows how Glencoe's Physics program was designed from the National Science Education Standards, which include the following four tenants: Science is for all students; Learning science is an active process; School science reflects the intellectual and cultural traditions that characterize the practice of contemporary science; and, Improving science education is part of systemic education reform. References of the research base can be viewed at the end of the document.
Randomized Controlled Studies
- Efficacy Study of Glencoe Chemistry and Physics
This report describes 13 schools in seven districts that have been successful in teaching chemistry and physics concepts, as evidenced by student performance and attitude, feedback from students and parents, and responses from teachers. These results demonstrate the benefits of effective chemistry and physics curricula programs, as well as successful teaching practices.
