The Model United Nations is the latest addition to the SMS portfolio of activities. An engaging and challenging club, the Model United Nations brings together students from all grades in one group. It provides opportunities to explore the applications of higher order thinking skills and to investigate new approaches in applying what they’ve learned in several subjects. Students emulate the activities of UN delegates in practice sessions and in monthly conferences, but more importantly they learn such diverse skills as speech making, negotiation, compromise, and position paper writing. Beyond these skills is the work that goes on under the surface in history, geography, economics, politics and worldwide relations that help students better understand the nations theory will represent. One of our most successful activities to date, in its two years of offering as an activity, the model UN has grown from eight students to over thirty.
