MODEL UN PROCEDURES
TOPIC: LEARNING PROPER MODEL UN PROCEDURES OBJECTIVES
• Identify important Model UN procedures.

REQUIREMENTS
1. Time: One class period 2. Materials Needed: • • Handout J: Jigsaw Chart Two definitions of Model UN procedures per “expert” groups

PROCEDURE
1. Lesson Introduction/Activation of Prior Knowledge Ask students to write for 1 minute about why procedures are important. They should write the entire minute and their pen/pencil should not leave the paper. If they cannot think of anything to write they should write “I don’t know” or “I’m thinking” until they can write a few sentences. Go over their answers. 2. Activity Explain to the students that they will be asked to follow several important rules of procedure when they are speaking at the Model UN conference. Each of these rules has a specific name and definition. Explain the students that they are going to be doing a Jigsaw activity. To start this activity, ask students to count off 1-5. Go around the room until all students have a number. Have students separate into groups according to their assigned number. Explain to the students each group is an “expert” group—they will receive two Rules of Procedure that they must become “experts” on. Give each group at least two Rules of Procedure (see answers below) and their definitions. Provide the groups several minutes to study the words and their definitions. They may take notes. Ask students to now form “home” groups. Each of these groups should contain one member of each “expert” group (numbers 1-5). Provide students with a copy of Handout L- Jigsaw Chart and ask them to complete the chart as a group. 3. Closing/Wrap-Up Review their answers.
