The Morningside Model of Generative Instruction
Johnson and Street describe a technology of instruction, based on scientific research, that has improved the academic performance of children, adolescents, and adults at 86 schools and agencies throughout the United States and Canada. The Morningside Model (of Generative Instruction) combines well-designed instructional materials, fast-paced classroom presentation, and focused practice to fluency. 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.
