Imagine a conference room filled with world delegates in an animated debate about a pressing global issue. On the podium is the United Nation's seal and gavel, an on the delegates' desks are placards bearing different countries' names placed side by side with their corresponding flag emblems. This is not the United Nations' headquarters, however. Neither are these delegates natives of the countries they are representing. This is the Model United Nations, and the participants you see in the midst of this serious discussion are but high school students coming from various schools in the school district. Model United Nations simulates how the United Nations' delegates come together to create solutions and make decisions regarding world issues. Through role play, students, with their insights and perspectives, become active participants in the simulated international decision-making thereby improving their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.
