MODEL UN AT GJHS
Model UN is an activity for 6th-8th grade Jr. High students. Mr. Swalley and Mr. Dothager are the faculty sponsors for Model UN. Interested students will be required to do research and write a paper on a topic chosen by Mr. Dothager and Mr. Swalley. Students will be assigned a country and a particular committee of the UN. They will spend the school year researching various issues relating to their committee and the position of their country in relation to those issues. Once they complete their research, they will draft resolutions, which they will present at the TRI-MUN conference, held in the spring.
