This is a fantastic project based learning lesson that focuses on trade and diplomacy over the Silk Road during the 14th century. This project works best with Middle or High School students. From my experience, lessons centered on the Silk Road are limited and overly simplified. For this reason, I created a project for students, who may come with a wide range of abilities or backgrounds, to explore and experience a simulated debate regarding the promotion of trade along the Silk Road. This project provides the foundation for teachers or students to expand their understandings of the content while also providing a unique experience for the class. An explanation of the lesson and all maps, lists of nations with brief backgrounds, student’ assignment instructions, rubrics, guides for success, and examples are included in this packet. It also includes all placard templates (Front and Back), student chair self-evaluations in case you want this lesson to be entirely student based, country sign up log, and a Crisis (extension) to change things up in the middle of the simulation. This project usually provides a small unit of activities. Parliament procedure and political strategies guides are also included for the simulation. Everything is included so that you can immediately utilize it. WHAPMUNCERS stands for a World History Advanced Placement Model United Nations Conference for Eurasian Road of Silk. This is a simulated MUN project for the classroom that had great success in the classroom. If you have any questions or concerns once receiving this lesson, please do not hesitate to contact me.
