Writing an Informative Text on the United Nations

After teaching about the UN, guide your students in writing an informative text that encapsulates what they’ve learned. Here’s a step-by-step approach:

Topic Selection

Students are to choose a specific aspect of the UN that interests them the most, such as peacekeeping missions, climate action, or refugee assistance.


Instruct students to gather information from reliable sources, including books, articles, and official UN publications. Emphasize the importance of credible sources.


Have students create an outline for their text, organizing their ideas logically. This will serve as a roadmap for their writing.


Teach them how to write a captivating introduction that grabs the reader’s attention and introduces the topic.


Guide students in presenting key information about their chosen aspect of the UN. Encourage them to use facts, statistics, and examples to support their points.


Encourage the use of visuals like images, charts, and graphs to enhance understanding.


Show them how to summarize the main points and reiterate the significance of the UN’s work.

Citing Sources

Teach proper citation methods, ensuring students give credit to their sources and avoid plagiarism.

Editing and Proofreading

Emphasise the importance of revising and editing their work for clarity, grammar, and spelling.


Have students share their informative texts with the class through presentations or written reports.
