Global Classrooms: Houston Model UN Conference
Each year, the United Nations Association of the USA's (UNA-USA) Global ClassroomsÂ® program, with the support of UNA Houston, provides curricular units, professional development support and the annual Global Classrooms: Houston Model UN Conference to HISD and Houston-area middle and high schools. Global Classrooms has been implemented in over 25 local schools where over 1,800 students receive access to the curriculum. Houston's Model UN conferences host between 600 and 800 students annually.
Global Classrooms is aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). It provides middle and high school students with the opportunity to experience a Model UN conference and to become part of the larger national Model UN community.
In addition, participants take part in the annual Global Classrooms: Houston Model UN Conference. The conference, to be held at Lanier Middle School, will provide a greater opportunity for students to participate in a professional conference setting and the chance to debate with hundreds of students from across the region.
