BATON ROUGE – More than 900 educators from across Louisiana will attend a classroom management conference at LSU on Saturday in the LSU Union Theater from 8:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.

The LSU College of Human Science & Education, in partnership with international education authors and presenters Harry and Rosemary Wong, is hosing “THE Classroom Management Conference” as the focus of the third-annual Effective Educators Seminar Series.

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 and is expected to draw hundreds of educators from across the state. 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 more than 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.
