This study aimed to identify the reality of secondary school science teachers' practice of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The researcher used the descriptive approach and a questionnaire designed as a tool to implement the study on a sample of (120) male and female secondary school science teachers in Irbid Governorate / Jordan. To achieve the purpose of the study. The results of the study found that there is a weakness of secondary school science teachers in understanding and applying the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), which is characterized in the implementation of most scientific and engineering practices, but they do not implement all eight practices. The results also found that physics teachers outperform teachers of other subjects (chemistry, biology and earth sciences) in employing scientific and engineering practices in their classroom practices. Additionally, the results indicated the lack of sufficient understanding of scientific and engineering practices and how to apply them. The study recommended introducing science teachers to the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), and the mechanism of their application in their classroom practices through professional development programs.
