Model United Nations

During November and December, 8th graders in Global studies will be preparing for a Model United Nations Conference (tentative date is Friday, December 14th).  Students will learn about the history, function, and structure of the United Nations.  They will be researching the issue of Refugees through the lense of the nation they are assigned to represent during the conference.  Students will write a position statement and work on public speaking, resolution writing, and negotiation and compromise.  If you are available to be a parent volunteer at the Model UN conference from 9:45-12:45 on 12/14, please email me at ann.ellingham@mpls.k12.mn.us.
