Montessori Model UN
LMS is sending 12 middle school student delegates to the Montessori Model UN in New York, April 25-28. LMS will represent the countries of Kyrgyzstan and Sri Lanka this year. Earlier this week...
...LMS hosted a preparatory session with Riverbend Montessori's Norway delegation. All delegates spoke in committee, learning to make motions and points of inquiry. Our topics this year include Food Price Volatility; Regulation of Nuclear Power; Disarmament, Demobilization, and Reintegration of Child Soldiers; and North-South Trade Inequity. Each student independently researched their topic and their country's history, and put together a position paper as well as a speech.
If you see Alex, Charlotte, Cheyenne, Galen, Jude, Kisha, Kuk, Mimi, Reed, Sylvie, Tim, or Will in the next week or so, wish them good luck!
If you have questions about the MMUN program, please talk to Kim McMaken-Marsh or Ellen Rutgers.
