MRH 8th Graders Invited to Attend an Honors Model United Nations
E4 (gifted) students at MRH Middle School worked during 3rd quarter to create, design, and write resolutions that simulate the process the United Nations would go through. Scholars researched country culture and data to determine a list of issues they could address in their resolution. After writing pre-ambulatory clauses with the data supporting their country's problem and Universal Declaration of Human Rights articles, they wrote operative clauses that addressed their original solutions, where funding would come from, the timeline of their program, and how they planned on evaluating the effectiveness of said solution.
Based on that work, three MRH 8th graders were invited to attend an honors model United Nations at Civitas. The students are Logan Phillips, Patrick Meyers, and Blue Bynum.
The students took part in a virtual simulation where two other middle schools participated and each school was represented by two exemplary resolutions chosen by the Civitas team. During the simulation, students were assessed on engagement throughout their classwork and during the simulation. In addition, these three students were chosen based on questions asked, engagement of collaboration and communication during project work, and leadership during their learning.
