    Students with a basic to intermediate understanding of traditional grammar have been shown in many studies to reach a higher level of proficiency than learners with no instruction in grammar.

    In many ways, there has been little impact on the teaching of grammar- if anything, the pendulum is swinging back towards traditional grammar in much of the UK.

    It would take ages to answer this, because of the many interlinked questions implicit in it.
    • What do you mean by 'traditional grammar'?
    • What do you mean by effective'?
    • How long is 'the present era'? Do you mean 'Nowadays'?
    • Whose attention is focused, by whom, and in what way?
    • What do you mean by 'functional grammar'? Are you talking about Halliday, or do you just mean 'getting things done'?

    This makes your question good for opening up debate. To that extent, it's also good for persuading me to concentrate on the cricket.
