SS8 – Week of October 10

October 7th, 2011

This week marks the conclusion of our first unit of study, and with it, the unit performance task.  During the past nine weeks, students have learned about international systems of governance – primarily focusing on the United Nations – and how this form of governance operates.

This week, students will get to demonstrate their understanding of this as they participate in a Model United Nations conference.  The conference provides students an opportunity to role-play a real delegate representing a real country on a real global issue of importance.  Our conferences will last the entire week in social studies in order to allow the student delegates to debate the various clauses (solutions) that they have developed relating to their issues.

We look forward to an exciting week of debates and hope that some effective clauses will be chosen for our resolutions!
