The Modern Age of MUN!

Model UN is getting some PRESS! First, we’d like to point you to the biggest article we’ve seen about Model UN as the New York Times must have hired an author with some legit MUN experience to explain how integral this new educational experience is for students growing up in this global world! And we also would like to tip our hats to our friends at Best Delegate for getting some great exposure in the article! On a side note that proves this whole MUN thing is growing like wildfire, our book is being ordered by the University of Indiana for use in a college course based on bringing Model UN into the classroom! We’re extremely honored that someone out there has heard of us. We did happen to write the only complete book on Model UN that exists, so we can’t blame them. But the main reason we’re writing today is because we wanted to share with you that the book has some new additions! MUN-E now includes an extra section on advanced strategies in Chapter 6: “The Blueprint,” as well as a whole new Chapter that carries you through the creation of your own website for your club, your conference, or your own blog. Just like our website is connected to our Facebook and Twitter, you can connect your site the same way using our chapter on “Going Digital.” Your site will be set up in WordPress FOR FREE, then with a few clicks you’ll have all of your social media integrated, and you’ll be managing your site like a pro with the WordPress dashboard. This is the future and we made it our mission to help get you there. Advisors and Club Organizers!!! Yes, we didn’t forget about you either. There is now an appendix that details organizational strategies for sustaining a successful Model UN Club along with some tips on managing a school trip of 80-100 high school students. Use the summer wisely and get prepped for this year’s competition! We’re including a preview of the book here. Use the little orange [+] button to share it!...

Testimonials from MUN Experts!

We put so much time and effort into creating this book because, the truth is, THERE IS NOTHING ON THE MARKET THAT PREPARES YOU FOR THE SOCIAL ASPECTS OF MODEL UN!! And our readers agree with that sentiment! We’ve got some great feedback from some really experienced delegates and successful Model UN advisors, as well as Best Delegate! We’re looking forward to bringing MUN-E to the MUN masses and we’re glad you’re here to check it out. The final touches on the second edition are complete and we know this is the best book about Model UN on the planet. Just check out these testimonials of what’s in the book: Our first from A. Latham of NC was very insightful! Hey, so I quite liked the book. There were a lot of things in it that I never really thought about but when I started imagining them they made perfect sense. I’ve read a lot of books about public speaking and Model UN topics and the part when the kind of sign of victory for any source of information is when I put it down and start wandering around the room, ostensibly to get a glass of water, but then I’m imagining giving speeches on the topic and things like that. Then the source can know that it’s achieved its goals. And MUN-E did that, there were a couple points where I went to “get a glass of water” and was pacing around my carpet thinking about Model UN situations where I would apply the ideas you wrote about like a pro and win. Ryan V. of Best Delegate said: I first wanted to catch up with you and Anthony re: MUN-E. Thanks for sending KFC and me a copy — I read the entire thing and I think it’s groundbreaking. We definitely need to thank them for posting our philosophy of MUN-E on their site! You can read it here. G. Gordon of Kew Forest School said: I just wanted to thank you for all of your efforts. I spoke with many of my Model UN Club members today. They really loved the presentation and found it interesting, thought provoking and useful. You and Anthony really reached them. No reason why this shouldn’t be part of any quality high school curriculum. Nathan Hughes of HARMUN Bahamas International School said: I have finished your book and really enjoyed it- it was excellent! I will be recommending that the School library and I will certainly be using it to help my students for next year. Now that you’ve seen what our readers have to say, isn’t it time you actually read it??? It’s on Amazon, now! Here’s a video recorded by our friends at Best Delegate when they came to see our students host their annual JPSMUN. The premiere Model UN news website, BestDelegate.com has visited a our annual high school conference and they took some video our own best delegates, interviewing them about their philosophy of MUN and what about Model UN has helped them succeed. Some of the delegates speaking will be attending colleges such as Wharton School of...
