The Return of Model UN!

The Return of Model UN!
Ben Wagor

On Sunday, May 1, 21 intrepid seventh- and eighth-grade students, accompanied by Ms. Amy and Ms. Karen, participated in a Model United Nations conference, hosted by The Dalton School in Manhattan. This all-day event attracted hundreds of students, mainly in high school, from the surrounding area to discuss world issues in committees similar to those of the United Nations.
 
All seventh- and eighth-grade students spent the winter studying the UN in Ms. Amy's Individuals and Societies class, beginning with the purpose and structure of the organization, before researching topics for the upcoming conference. In the spring, students attending the conference met after school with Ms. Amy and Mr. Ben to practice parliamentary debate skills and prepare for the conference.
 
All of our students were engaged and involved in their committees, actively participating and interacting with delegates from other schools.
 
The students returned to school the following day with exciting stories from their first Model United Nations conference. We look forward to building on this wonderful experience for Middle School students next year!
