Research on Computer Based Resource Units.
Presented are four research papers on computer based resource units (CBRUs) which are relevant to special education (SE). J. Eisele explains computer use for curriculum development and instructional management by describing the problem, objectives, and procedures, and by giving conclusions. The system is said to involve teacher selection of objectives and completion of a student profile, and computer production of resource guides consisting of four sets of suggestions for each objective and lists of activities and materials. An appendix includes learner variables, teacher decision-making variables, a CBRU schema, and a list of resource units (eight units are starred for SE use). K. Cross summarizes four studies on CBRU use for developing critical thinking skills, developing positive attitudes toward mathematics, using objectives of understanding to increase students' knowledge, and using a precoded resource guide for a U.S. Constitution unit, and concludes that there are no quantitative losses and some quantitative gains from CBRU use. T. Clayback summarizes two studies on effects of computer assisted planning on teacher behaviors and reports results such as teachers using a resource guide preplanned more and developed better planning ability than teachers not using the guide. Discussed by G. Bianchi and D. Burr are ways CBRUs enhance curriculum research and evaluation strategies. The authors examine teaching-learning components, and summarize completed and ongoing studies to illustrate CBRU use. (MC)
