What are the challenges and rights of people around the world? How can countries work together to find solutions to global problems? We’ll ask the same questions that delegates to the United Nations have been asking since it was founded, and, like those delegates, we’ll research, debate, negotiate, and prepare resolutions to mobilize international cooperation. In this first part of a three-session workshop cycle, students will begin their preparation for attendance at the Montessori Model United Nations conference in March. We’ll learn about the United Nations, its history, and the challenges facing global peace. We’ll research our assigned countries and the issues our committees will address, and — with a deeper understanding of our country’s culture, political views, and belief systems — we’ll start formulating positions on those issues. Enrollment is limited to families who attended the information meeting and have permission from the instructor. Taught by Cathleen Drake Nelson
