Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The realization of this Supervised Teaching Practice Report provided a reflection on the dialogic attitude regarding a reality that, unfortunately, manifests itself as very conflicting. The desire to achieve peace in all dimensions of life persists, considered one of the greatest’s dreams of humanity, however, there are so many conflicts and atrocities, so much selfishness and discrimination, so much thirst to achieve their own interests with attitudes who show disregard for others. To reconcile the Teaching Unit 4, A Paz Universal, of the seventh-year program of basic education with our current situation, I was interested in highlighting the urgency of dialogue in relationships, which is a subject in the order of many personal, social, cultural and interreligious discussions. The Discipline of Catholic Moral and Religious Education becomes a space for reflection that suggests an awareness that everyone has the power to do different, they are challenged to commit themselves in faith and with others, to contribute to a sincere and willing dialogue to resolve what is not well. True relationships imply the presence of others to welcome everyone. For this, it is necessary to meet the Other. Pope Francis also appeals to the need to «Build bridges instead of building walls». 2 In this sense, it is essential to apply the well-known golden rule in relationships, which is highlighted in the Holy Bible: «Whatever you want others to do to you, do to them too!» (Luke 6, 31), therefore, peace undoubtedly contributes to a full life, as well as to the full fulfillment of each person.
