Giving Compass’ Take:
• Teachers are in a position to make an immense impact on student outcomes. Rewarding effective teaching methods financially can help to drive student success.
• Which of these methods works with your education goals? How can these methods be implemented on a large scale to make progress for students?
• How do financial incentives work in the context of the United States, where teacher salaries have been declining for years?
1. Salary supplements for reaching more students:
In Cabarrus County, N.C., Lori Treiber and Scott Nolt are blended-learning teachers at Central Cabarrus High School and Jay M. Robinson High School, respectively, in the Cabarrus County School District. Each uses a mix of in-person teaching and online learning—either at home or school—to reach twice as many students within a specific class period as they would otherwise.
2. Multiple roles with public funding:
CICS West Belden focuses on ensuring that all students receive consistent, high-quality instruction and have strong, caring relationships with multiple adults at school through a combination of small-group instruction, online learning, and four main teaching roles: instructional coach, mentor teacher, career teacher, and resident teacher.
3. Team teaching and coaching:
Intrinsic Schools’ staffing arrangement aims to give students personalized instruction and supportive relationships from multiple adults, while fostering teacher development through co-teaching.
4. Higher pay for multi-classroom leaders:
Multi-classroom leaders (MCLs) extend the reach of their excellent teaching to more students by leading small teaching teams.
