For over 40 years, Morningside has investigated the most effective methods for developing learners, thinkers, and citizens. In this book, the authors describe a technology of instruction based on scientific research that has improved the academic performance of children at schools and agencies throughout the world. The Morningside Model of Generative Instruction combines curated curriculum, formal instruction, practice to fluency, and a focus on directly teaching functional thinking repertoires for generative responding. The result is expert and confident learners who apply skills and strategies to think about the world around them, continue to learn on their own, and solve problems of daily living.
