This paper deals with the question and problem of classroom teacher effectiveness. The paper is composed of two major parts. The first part considers the problem of classroom teacher effectiveness as a bounded critical case study with its own unique and specific complexities and features. The extensive and theoretical foundations of classroom teacher effectiveness are canvassed in order to highlight contemporary school-system conceptualisations of effective teaching practice. Part two of the paper makes proposals for a new understanding of effective teaching practice based primarily upon an analysis and evaluation of teaching practice as work that is situated within particular and distinguishable post-Fordist contexts.
