1 Hook/Attention Getter (3min. 30 seconds)
In order to give an introduction to what MUN is a video regarding MUN will be shown. This video also serves the purpose of being an attention getter and it presents basic concepts regarding MUNs. Youtube was chosen in order to fulfill the objective of having students able to explain the dynamic of MUN (a video is a more intersting way to show how MUNs usually work).
