Montessori Model United Nations General Assembly
Students from grades 7 through 10 have had a course this year for Montessori Model United Nations. For some students, this course will culminate in participating in a General Assembly event in Rome, Italy (interested parents should attend the meeting this Wednesday at 2:30pm).
On Friday, all 34 students had theif first practice run at a General Assembly using the skills they have learned in the course so far this year. All students made opening speeches and engaged in lobbying prior to statements of positions and voting.
The course structure is designed to engage students with the transdisciplinary nature of global problems and the actual work people do at the United Nations to solve them.
