BATON ROUGE – The LSU College of Human Science & Education, in partnership with international education authors and presenters Harry and Rosemary Wong, will host “THE Classroom Management Conference” as the focus of the third-annual Effective Educators Seminar Series this summer, in Allen, Texas, on June 25, and in Baton Rouge on June 28.

The cost of attending the conference is $139, including lunch and a copy of the Wongs’ latest book, “THE Classroom Management Book,” which retails for $39.95. Attendees may earn up to six continuing education units. Accommodations for both the Texas and Louisiana events are available.

The conference, featuring speakers Harry and Rosemary Wong and Chelonnda Seroyer, will bring cutting-edge classroom and school practices to teachers and administrators. The conference shares common sense, research-based, basic techniques that cost nothing to implement.

This conference is designed to benefit pre-service teachers, teachers, administrators, instructional coaches, staff developers and college professors. Attendees will learn how to manage the classroom for student learning and achievement.

The Wongs are authors of the book on effective classroom management, “The First Days of School.” First published in 1991, it has since sold more than 3.7 million copies and is currently in its fourth edition. It is used in thousands of school districts, in more than 116 countries, and in over 2,026 college classrooms. It has sold more copies than any other book of its type in the history of American education, making the Wongs the foremost authorities on creating effective teachers and the most sought-after speakers in the field. They have spoken to more than one million educators and enhanced the careers of tens of thousands of teachers and administers.

Fellow presenter Chelonnda Seroyer was successful before the bell rang to start her teaching career. She will share her techniques to transform schools and classrooms overnight.
