Example Code error in Django Docs for Generic Views

There is an error in this piece of documentation:

The example shows the 'direct_to_template' function surrounded by 'single quotes'. However, in the book, it shows the function being called without quotes:

Surrounding the direct_to_template function with quotes yields this error:
TypeError at /
'str' object is not callable

When used without quotes it works fine. Simple correction to 'djangoproject' documentation is required.
