Southeast Alabama Model United Nations Assembly (SAMUN)
The Southeast Alabama Model United Nations Assembly gives students in middle school the opportunity to experience the United Nations first hand. Each delegation of 4 – 7 students represent a different nation and demonstrate their proficiency in persuasive writing, research skills, and public speaking, while deciding important issues that affect the world in this mock assembly. This is achieved through exploration and writing across history, geography, mathematics, economics, and science curriculums. Participation promotes the development of skills in research, problem solving, consensus building conflict resolution, and compromise and cooperation.
