Educators are facing the implementation of the new Common Core State Standards and the expectation to use technology to engage and motivate students to learn these standards.
Big Universe has been proven to meet these diverse needs of educators, students, and parents by serving as a highly engaging online literacy community. It continues to provide strong support of the Common Core State Standards while maintaining a student-driven, online presence. Big Universe supports the new Common Core State Standards Initiative through its alignment to the College and Career Readiness (CCR) anchor standards in the areas of reading, writing, language, speaking, and listening (see tabs below).
"The CCR and grade-specific standards are necessary complements — the former providing broad standards, the latter providing additional specificity — that together define the skills and understandings that all students must demonstrate."*
