Abstract:
The effective implementation of the chemistry curriculum is crucial for promoting student learning and achievement in secondary schools. However, various factors can influence the successful delivery of the curriculum, and teachers play a vital role in this process. This study aims to investigate the teacher-related factors that affect the effective implementation of the chemistry curriculum in secondary schools.

The research will utilize a mixed-methods approach, incorporating both quantitative and qualitative data collection methods. Quantitative data will be gathered through surveys administered to chemistry teachers in selected secondary schools. The surveys will explore factors such as teachers’ content knowledge, pedagogical skills, and instructional strategies, as well as their perceptions of the curriculum’s clarity, relevance, and suitability for student needs.

Qualitative data will be collected through in-depth interviews and classroom observations. The interviews will provide an opportunity for teachers to elaborate on their experiences, challenges, and perceptions related to the implementation of the chemistry curriculum. Classroom observations will offer insights into instructional practices, classroom management, and teacher-student interactions.

The study will involve a sample of chemistry teachers from diverse secondary schools, ensuring a range of experiences and perspectives. Data analysis will involve both quantitative statistical techniques and qualitative thematic analysis to identify patterns, correlations, and themes across the data.

The findings of this research will contribute to a deeper understanding of the teacher-related factors that influence the effective implementation of the chemistry curriculum in secondary schools. The results will inform educational policymakers, curriculum developers, and teacher training programs about areas that require attention and support. Additionally, the study will provide insights and recommendations for enhancing teacher professional development initiatives to address the identified challenges and improve the quality of chemistry education in secondary schools.

Keywords: chemistry curriculum, secondary schools, teacher-related factors, effective implementation, content knowledge, pedagogical skills, instructional strategies, teacher perceptions.
