CLEAR Curriculum Units
So far, we have designed and are pilot testing four instructional units for the Cumulative Learning using Embedded Assessment Results (CLEAR) project: Plate Tectonics, Thermodynamics, Global Warming, and Photosynthesis. These units will provide core energy concepts to students at the beginning of each CLEAR grade level.

As the CLEAR project progresses, we will be developing additional WISE units to supplement the CLEAR energy curriculum. For more details about the goals and design rationale behind these units, see the CLEAR curriculum activities page.

LOOPS Curriculum Units
We are developing curriculum units for the Logging Opportunities in Online Programs for Science (LOOPS) project that will include all the content needed to address the California 8th grade middle school Force and Motion and Chemical Reactions standards. For more details on the design of LOOPS curricula, see the LOOPS curricula page. To access LOOPS software and activities, visit the LOOPS homepage at the Concord Consortium.
