Exhilirating, competitive, and fun! The Model UN course at W.D.M.H is designed to give students a better perspective of the world in relations to international concerns and developments. This course runs for one semester and is offered exclusively to the Senior Class.
In the beginning of the semester, students develop their public speaking and debating skills in preparation for the extremely competitive Model UN. Later in the semester, after posts have been assigned, competition materials are reviewed, and performances are solid, the WDMH Senior Class heads off for the Georgia High School Model UN. The competition is organized by Kennesaw State University and it requires openness, public speaking, debating, reading and analyzing skills. It not only gives students knowledge about other countries and cultures around the world, but it’s a great bonus to have on a College Application!
