L I T E R A C Y F U N D I N G Funding Opportunities to Help Boost Your Balanced Literacy Program Big Universe is a comprehensive digital reading platform with a library of more than 14,000 leveled eBooks for students in K–12, including Spanish, nonfiction-fiction pairs, and Hi-Low. Our affordable, supplemental platform—which supports balanced literacy programs with integrated tools designed to improve students' reading skills—can be made even more affordable by tapping into grants available through ESSA. Title I allocates funds to improve basic programs and ensure that economically and socially disadvantaged students receive equal opportunity access to a quality education. Big Universe can be used to help these students because it: • Supports cross-curricular teaching and differentiated instruction • Provides students with independent reading materials • Gives teachers access to guided reading literature for use in small group instruction Title II, Part B includes two literacy grant programs, the Literacy Education for All: Results for the Nation (LEARN), and the Innovative Approaches to Literacy grant program. Big Universe can be used as part of a literacy program because it: • Supports K–12 cross-curricular teaching and differentiated instruction • Includes balanced literacy programs with integrated tools such as embedded assessments and a student recommendation engine • Uses advanced speech recognition technology to accurately and efficiently score students on oral fluency, reading comprehension, and reading level THE EVERY STUDENT SUCCEEDS ACT* (ESSA), enacted in 2015, provides flexible funding streams through consolidated grant programs to ensure an equitable education for all students. The bipartisan act consolidates key grants and programs—including Title I, Title II, Title III, and Title IV—to help support and grow rigorous and comprehensive programs designed to close achievement gaps, improve the quality of instruction, and increase outcomes for all students.
