Student Names: ___________________________________________________ Class Period: _____ Remember the Titans Conflict Resolution Project Directions: You and a partner will be using the conflict in the movie Remember the Titans to connect to our world today. Where do you see the same type of conflict in your life at home, school, or the community? How do prejudice and ignorance play a role in that conflict? How can you use conflict resolution skills to resolve the conflict (e.g. communication, cooperation, compromise, effective speaking and listening skills, “I messages…”)? Notes: Using the “Characters in Conflict” worksheet you took notes on two of the characters from the movie. How did these characters act toward each other at the beginning, middle, and end of the movie? What did they say to each other? How did they feel toward each other? What is their perspective of the other person and the conflict they share? Reflection: With your partner, write a paragraph for each of the bullet points, below, explaining what you learned about the conflict from the movie. In your writing, please include: Explain why the characters had conflict. What role did prejudice and ignorance play in the conflict? How did they resolve their conflict? Could there have been better options for resolving the conflict? Where do you see the same type of conflict in your life (home, school, community)? How could you use what you learned from the movie about conflict resolution to help you solve the same conflicts you see in your life? Presentation/Script: Use the notes and reflection to create a two to three minute script of your presentation that can be presented to the classroom. Your script must show how you would use conflict resolution skills to solve the problems that you see in your life. Specifically, you must show how you would use: Communication Cooperation Compromise Effective speaking and listening skills “I” messages Scripts must be turned in at the beginning of the presentation, so this means you must PRACTICE in order to do well.
