As the final assessment for our Global Organizations Unit, eighth grade simulated the Security Council of the United Nations. In this unit, students first conducted background research on their given Security Council Nation. Then, they investigated the topic of the Syrian civil war from the position of their country and drafted a "Position Paper." This week, students debated their positions and possible solutions, using Model United Nations Parliamentary Procedure rules. Students honed critical thinking, speaking, and writing skills in a challenging format. A resolution failed to pass the Council, as students committed fully to their country's views!
