Transcript of Socialization
is the process of learning and internalizing the values, beliefs, and norms of our social group and by which we become functioning members of society.
The socialization process begins in infancy and is especially productive once a child begins to understand and use language.
Socialization is a lifelong process.
Agents of socialization:
social groups, institutions, and individuals
that provide structured situations in which socialization takes place.
four predominant agents of socialization
: are the
family, schools, peers, and the mass media.
The family is the single most significant agent of socialization in all societies and teaches us the basic values and norms that shape our identity.
created, negotiated and agreed upon
(that is, constructed) socially, through social interaction.
The world exists before we’re born but we help (re)create the world by interacting with others.

Agents of Socialization: Schools
Schools provide education and socialize us through a hidden curriculum (a set of behavioral traits such as punctuality, neatness, discipline, hard work, competition, and obedience) that teaches many of the behaviors that will be important later in life.
Agents of socialization: Peers
Peers provide very different social skills and often become more immediately significant than the family, especially as children move through adolescence.
Peer group socialization has been increasing over the past century because young people are attending school for longer periods of time.
Agents of socialization: Mass media
The mass media has become an important agent of socialization, often overriding the family and other institutions in instilling values and norms.
The American mass media plays a major role in teaching Americans to buy and consume goods and other values.
