Romeo and Juliet in Brasilia, Brazil

Julia and Matheus ( Romeo and Juliet) have been reflecting upon the theme of conflict.

conflict

They share their opinions :

From an individual perspective

(Júlia Carvalho)

  • What causes conflicts between you and your family ? And between peers?

My parents don´t like some of my friends and worry too much about places I want to go and we also have conflicts about spending more time with my family.

  • How are these conflicts best resolved?

They are best resolved through conversations.

  • How can this help us  understand conflict in Romeo and Juliet?

Parents should listen to their children more often, respect their wishes and respect their ability to judge what is best for themselves.

  • Why do  conflicts in Romeo and Juliet begin? Were some conflicts  inevitable?  Are these kind of conflicts usual today?

Because of the rivalry between the two families.

From an individual perspective

(Matheus Brito)

  • What causes conflicts between you and your family ? And between peers? How are these conflicts best resolved?

 The conflicts that happen in my family usually are about different opinions  we have. My classmates have different opinions when  we discuss about abortion. I think that we should respect each other’s opinion.  

  • .How can this help us  understand conflict in Romeo and Juliet?

I believe that if they put aside their pride and respect others there would be peace

  • Why do  conflicts in Romeo and Juliet begin? Were some conflicts  inevitable?  Are these kind of conflicts usual today?

Because Juliet and Romeo’s families hated each other without any strong reason. Nowadays there are too many  conflicts between parents and children, even though sometimes parents just want to protect their children, their children don’t see it that way.

By Matheus

From a global perspective

  • Are there conflicts in the world?

Yes, there are a lot.

  • Are people tolerant enough to allow people to live with differences?

In some countries people are more tolerant than others.

Hello!

We are the teachers: Monique and Renata Madureira and our students who are participating on this project are Julia as Juliet and Matheus as Romeu. We’re from Brasilia, which is the capital of Brazil.

 Julia and Matheus are already writing a script for a short video.

Julia is 15 and Matheus 18. There are also some drawings from some of our younger students I used to illustrate the post.
