Abstract: This symposium reports research investigating the design and implementation of curriculum, assessment, and professional development to promote cumulative understanding of energy. Using energy as a core idea, we link topics in 6th and 7th grade including thermodynamics, plate tectonics, global climate change, and photosynthesis. We explore new forms of assessment called MySystem and Energy Stories to capture cumulative understanding. Synthesis of findings across studies illustrates the trajectory of student learning and clarifies the elements of the curriculum that promote coherent views.
