The purpose of the present study is to investigate the effect of science teacher’s awareness of the next generation of science standards (NGSS). The study sample consisted of 160 male and female teachers of the primary schools in the district of Jenin, and they represent 70% of the teachers’ community. The purpose of the present study is to investigate the effect of science teacher’s awareness of the next generation of science standards (NGSS). To achieve its purpose, the study adopted the descriptive survey approach, and thus a questionnaire was designed as a tool for applying it. The questionnaire is made up of 57 items categorized into three categories. The study findings showed that teachers have a moderate awareness of the next generation of science standards (NGSS), as the average response to the study sample on the scale standard was 3.314. The findings also showed no statistically significant differences at α = 0.05 due to various factors such as gender, years of teaching experience, and specialization. However, there are statistically significant differences at α = 0.05 attributed to the academic qualification factor. Interestingly, these differences serve post-graduate studies.
