This is a preliminary timeline to give teachers who are new to TCMUN a basic understanding of conference prep.
March through June: Schools register with InterConnections 21 through the online registration form.
August: Background guides for the seven designated committees are posted on the TCMUN blog
Beginning of September: IC21 assigns countries and committees to all registered schools.
During September: Teachers and registered delegates go over timeline and expectations for TCMUN and review research methods; students begin to learn about history, structure, and workings of the United Nations, researching the various committees, and topics using materials available on the TCMUN blog or from their teacher. Teachers will assign individual countries and committees to students based on what countries and committees each school has been assigned by IC21.
November 5 – 10: Teachers collect their students’ position papers, so they will have time to grade them before the conference begins. See position paper writing guide.
November 11-13: Students and teachers are in Jackson Hole for the Teton County Model UN! Please see the sample conference program and description of TCMUN structure to get an idea of the schedule for this two day conference (plus pre-conference Sunday reception).
