Computer based resource units were developed to improve the individualization of instruction through unit teaching. Instructional behaviors of teachers were examined to see if this kind of computer aid brought about a change in the way teachers teach. A pre-post two group experimental design was used in which the data were collected by a group of trained observers using an instruction observation tool. Pre-post mean scores were tested and found to be significant in five out of seven dimensions of instructional behavior. Variety and kinds of instructional materials and methods were also examined. The data indicate that teachers who use computer based resource units increase the number and improve the quality of many individualized instruction tasks.
