The New Brunswick Comprehensive Reading/Language Arts Plan (NBCRP).
Botel, Morton; And Others
The New Brunswick (Canada) Comprehensive Reading/Language Arts Plan (NBCRP) is an integrative framework of goals not only for a developmental reading/language arts program but also for the special students regardless of classification. The NBCRP proposes three major categories of action: (1) the institution and improvement of a reading/language arts curriculum for grades one through twelve based upon the structure of five critical experiences--sustained silent reading of self-selected books, composing (oral and written), reading aloud to students, responding to literature (heard, read, visualized, or dramatized), and investigating and mastering basic skills; (2) the institution and improvement of effective curriculum related tests for placement, diagnosis and measurement of progress; and (3) the institution and improvement of informal measures of the students' growth in interaction (talking together) skills, writing skills, study skills, and positive attitudes toward reading.
