Great article in the Daily Breeze about Mira Costa's Model United Nations Class and Team. Go Costa!

Note from the Superintendent:
One of the points I often make when I speak in public is that the MCHS Model UN class/team is the epitome of 21st century education. Let's review the components of 21st century education.
  1. Collaboration - The students rely on collaboration within the class and with other schools for success.
  2. Critical Thinking - It's all about applying facts and data to different situations, synthesizing and analyzing that informaiton.  It's critical thinking at a very high level.
  3. Creativity - You have to be creative when you are assigned to speak as South Korea or Iran about issues of peace and collaboration!
  4. Communication - You have to learn how to write and speak clearly and effectively. 
21st century teaching and learning is what business are looking for in our graduates.  Model UN is a perfect way of teaching those skills.
