From the Laboratory to the Field and Back Again: Morningside Academy's 32 Years of Improving Students' Academic Performance
Department or Administrative Unit
Morningside Academy is a third-level scientifically driven service organization (Johnston, 1996) consisting of a laboratory school and outreach to schools and agencies throughout the United States and Canada through its partnership with Morningside Teachers' Academy. The approach blends together a number of empirically validated practices to assist students in achieving academic performance gains. This article describes the three phases--instruction, practice, and application--that make up Morningside's educational programs, outlines the coaching protocol used to prepare teachers to effectively deliver the programs, presents evidence of effectiveness, and calls on our colleagues in basic human research and experimentally controlled applied research organizations to partner with us to answer important theoretical and procedural questions related to our current technologies.
