GC Houston

GC Houston Welcome to Global Classrooms Houston, where we integrate traditional Model UN with the passion for learning! Follow us on Twitter: @GCHouston

Global Classrooms is a focused program for urban schools that combines the experience of Model United Nations simulations with a curriculum that can be integrated into a high school or middle school social studies classroom. The goal is to integrate an understanding of global issues while also developing academic and workplace skills in leadership, research, writing, problem solving, public speaking, and negotiation skills. The UNA-Houston Educational Division works with teachers, counselors, principals, and school district officials to integrate the program into the curriculum of the various schools. We are a branch of the UNA-USA Global Classrooms initiative. Find our more information at http://www.unausa.org/global-classrooms-model-un. This page was created to inform our schools, staff, and community on GC Houston updates.

You're invited to the official 2016 Global Classrooms Houston Model United Nations Conference to be held April 8, 2016.

For the first time since its inception, we are opening the conference to both schools who teach a dedicated Global Classrooms curriculum in the classroom and those who teach Model UN during an after school club. Staying true to the mission of Global Classrooms, our conference is focused on educating children on diplomacy and international relations, as well as cultivating young minds to bring positive change in the future. Schools with well-established Model UN teams (i.e. those who have attended competitive conferences such as HAMUN or MUNSA) will find the conference does not fit the needs of their students.

The conference, to be held at the University of Houston Downtown, 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.

Global Classrooms is aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS). Resources for faculty advisors and delegates to prepare for the conference can now be accessed online and through the UNA phone app. Visit http://www.unausa.org/global-classrooms-model-un for more information.

All schools interested in attending the conference school should email UNA Houston with the number of prospective delegates at [email protected]. Delegates at GC Houston work as double delegations (2 students per country, per school, per committee). Our conference size is limited, thus space will be assigned to accommodate a wide variety of schools. Country assignments will be emailed once registration has been finalized and payment has been received. The cost per delegate is $25. Official registration will begin fall of 2016.
