Community Schools

The 8th graders in Mrs. Mulfinger’s Language Arts class recently participated in a Model United Nations simulation that opened their eyes to a variety of conflicts outside the walls of PVJH!

The students worked for nearly three weeks in groups representing different countries to learn more about how the United Nations works and what some of the challenges the group faces. Each country made a different proposal on how to solve the Syrian refugee crisis and had a discussion and vote for each proposal. There were even five countries with veto power, adding another element of education for the 8th graders about diplomatic discussion, alliances, and compromise.

Students were very involved in the lessons, watching two documentaries, doing research, and reading about the refugee situation throughout the unit. We are always impressed with our teachers pushing PV students to be engaged in the world outside their school and our district!
