Montessori Model United Nations Teacher Coordinator Course

MMUN Teacher Coordinator Course for Montessori teachers of students aged between 9-15 years.

Would you like to unleash the incredible power of the next generation? Would you like to help them develop communication, negotiation, leadership, social, and interpersonal skills? Would you like to empower them to make a difference towards a better world?

The Montessori Model UN Conference is a unique experience based on a program which combines the scholarship and global citizenry of Model United Nations with the pedagogical insights of Maria Montessori. At these conferences, students aged 9-15 years old assume the role of either an ambassador or a Press Corps reporter. Because the committees and their relevant topics are taken directly from the United Nations’ agenda, the students become deeply engaged in critical and contemporary world issues. Moreover, the conferences are designed to meet the needs of each student at his or her current stage of development. By working to solve real-world issues in a developmentally-appropriate setting, students become active members of the world they will inherit as adults.

This workshop is the first step for all teachers, Montessori or not, who are new to Montessori Model UN and want to have their students participate in the MMUN Conferences. The workshop is a one-time activity required prior to attending all MMUN Conferences. Teachers in attendance will receive the Montessori Model UN Teacher Certificate.

Whether your school is planning on sending a contingent of students to an international MMUN Conference, or to plan for a future Australian MMUN Conference, this workshop is a must.
