Rewarding Good Teachers. A Research Brief.
Educational Service District 189, Mt. Vernon, WA.
According to research of the 1980's in the ERIC system and elsewhere, there seem to be three schools of thought about the most effective ways to reward good teachers and provide incentives for improving teacher performance. The schools of thought described include (1) intrinsic rewards only; (2) specific additional monetary rewards for specific performance; and (3) both extrinsic and intrinsic rewards. The types of "professional" or intrinsic incentives to which teachers respond positively are listed. Tennessee Governor Lamar Alexander's 10 prescriptions for rewarding good teachers are offered. Appended are 23 references. (SI)
