Morningside, a school for elementary and middle school children and a teacher-training institute, has existed since 1980 as one of the most well-respected integrators of research-based instructional methodologies in the world. At the foundation of effectiveness at Morningside are methods for measuring and developing fluent skills and knowledge with Precision Teaching. Dr. Kent Johnson, founder and Director of Morningside, has trained hundreds of teachers affecting thousands of children and has developed the Morningside Model of Generative Instruction as a vehicle for disseminating his continuously evolving methodological synthesis.
