What is the difference between purchasing the curriculum on the website or from TpT?
Thank you for checking out both! Purchase from either place will include the same resources. If you purchase the curriculum from my website store, it also includes a built-in private community just for teachers using the Chemistry Corner Community. You get access to all the same resources plus in-depth lesson plans, unit plans, a curriculum map and pacing guide, NGSS correlation, TEKS correlation, and, of course, access to the Chemistry Corner community where you can connect with teacher from around the world. The online curriculum and community will also have bonus units included, and I’m constantly adding new resources, whereas TpT updates only happen once or twice a year. Each resource is downloaded individually as needed.
As long as you maintain your membership, you get access to everything! Should you cancel, you keep only files you have downloaded.
On my TpT store, I have unit bundles and the full year curriculum available for immediate digital download. After purchasing, you will download a zip folder for each unit. You can always download any & all updates to the units in the future from your “My Purchase” page on TpT.
Tell me more about the Chemistry Corner Community.
The community is a part of the online curriculum, and housed on our website. Here, you will be able to meet teachers from around the world that use the same curriculum. You can connect with community teachers to share documents or assessments, collaborate on projects, and share thoughts and ideas. This is a great place to connect and gain much needed support!
What happens after I purchase the Year Curriculum?
After entering your information, you will receive a log-in and password for the site. You’ll then gain access to the community and curriculum where you can start going through all your new resources! You’ll immediately gain access to every unit in the curriculum. In the future, this will also include access to the bonus units.
Do you accept school purchase orders?
Yes, we accept school POs. If you are interested in getting a quote for a school PO, please complete this form.
Please note that one subscription is the purchase of one teacher license. You will need to purchase a subscription for each teacher that will be using the curriculum. For quotes for more than three teachers please email us for information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is your refund policy?
Unfortunately, due to the digital nature of these resources there are no refunds. Be sure to check out my reviews on TpT and on this website!
How will I be charged?
If you choose the quarterly subscription, your credit card will be charged the quarterly rate when you sign up and then on that same date of the month three months later while you have the curriculum package. This quarterly charge gets you the full access to all curriculum resources and the Chemistry Corner Community as long as you’re a member!
If you select the annual subscription, you will be charged that full amount after hitting submit. This subscription gives you access to the full curriculum and community for 365 days, and will be auto-billed on the same date next year. Don’t worry, you don’t have to do anything.
Can I share my membership license with other teachers?
Each teacher needs their own teacher membership license. We do offer discounts to schools or districts purchasing multiple teacher licenses. Please contact Beth at email@example.com with questions, or see further information on our Purchase Order page. With my curriculum your school will no longer have a need to buy textbooks for all the students. We give you everything you need! This is a massive savings to your school district!
How do I change my payment method?
New or renewed credit card? No problem! To change your payment method, access your account information from the side menu or from the dropdown menu under your name in the top menu. Next click on “Billing Info”. You can change your card info here.
Can I cancel my membership?
Yes, of course. We will hate to see you go, but I understand that you might be assigned a new prep or just decide that you don’t need these resources anymore.
If you used a credit card, you can cancel by clicking on the head logo/avatar on the top right of the screen when you are logged in. Click on settings and then Billing Info. There you will see your current subscriptions. Next to it are 3 dots, click there and you can cancel your subscription out at any time.
Will there be new materials added?
Absolutely! We are constantly updated current resources and adding new resources. We anticipate the chemistry curriculum being completed by mid March. New bonus units will also be added. These are units that are not customarily included in most state standards, but are needed by some teachers.
What grade level are these resources appropriate for?
These resources work best for students in grades 9-10. Of course, students vary quite a bit across the nation and within schools. It is recommended that students have completed algebra I before starting this course. The course is designed as a typical high school chemistry year curriculum. It is appropriate for the standard level class. Where appropriate, lessons will have a standard version and an honors version. A couple even have an advanced honors version.
I recommend you download and try out free lessons and resources to see how those would work with your students. They are a great representation of the curriculum as a whole. It is easy to modify as most resources include an editable version. This makes it easy to make things a little more advanced or simple depending on the group you are teaching.
What schedule are the lessons based on?
The daily lessons are structured for a 50 minute class schedule. However, this schedule an be easily structured to meet a block schedule.
You can download a FREE pacing guide that is based on a 50 minute class schedule. The curriculum map that is included is structured for the 50 minute class for 36 weeks, and for the 50 minute class for 18 weeks – basically the schedule for the block scheduled class.
Does the digital component of the Chemistry Corner Curriculum integrate with Online Classrooms/LMS?
Yes! Each lesson and a lot of the support resources have both print and digital options. These are housed on Google Drive and integrate seamlessly with Google Classroom. They will also integrate perfectly with Schology, Canvas, and other online password protected Classrooms. You can also print everything! Most resources are completely editable and easy to modify!
What if I have further questions, or need help with a particular resource?

Once you join the Chemistry Corner Community, there are many places to ask questions and connect with other teachers using the same materials within the community such as the activity feed, groups, or forums, or even with just one other teacher.
