About this event

Model UN simulates the six major organs of the United Nations. Students play Delegates from a country of their choosing and learn to write and present resolutions based on topics they are passionate aboutjust as if they were representing member states of the United Nations. We utilize materials from National Model UN and video tutorials to teach students how to write and present position papers, working papers, and draft resolutions. Students use debate and negotiation to enlist the support of other delegates (students in the same class) for their resolution. Model UN is a great way to teach students leadership skills like communication, conflict resolution, negotiation, and delegation. Students also learn how to draft and fine tune essays and speeches and persuade others with win-win negotiation tactics.
