Question Description

Assignment #2--Socialization Paper: Using as many agents of socialization that apply, describe how each agent socialized you to become the person that you are today. Trace your personal socialization from birth to the present moment. Be sure to include all of the following terms:

1. Status: friend, employee, coach ascribed=sister, daughter

2. role expectations: the expectation that comes with the fact that I have the role and gender of a women, armenian family= women does cooking, cleaning, have been doing so for generations but it is accepted and never challenged in our culture

3. role strain: bio student= too many challenging science and mathematics courses, need to take 15+ units every semester to transfer in 2 years

4. role conflict: the role as a student and employee was probably one of the most difficult ones.

5. agents of socialization: parents, friends, other members of society in my generation

6. Norms: no cursing in public, normal hygiene

7. Folkways: being polite, using manners, shaking a person’s hand when introducing yourself, always greeting elders first

8. Mores: how to dress for certain social settings, no drinking during high school, school more important than relationships with boys

9. Values: my family’s values→ education, keeping family close, kids after marriage

10. social control: (norms, folkways, mores) parents and friends influenced what was socially acceptable

11. Sanctions: good grades=praise, was expected bad grades=punishment

12. Subculture: different groups in high school: band, jocks, “nerds,” ASB, “goths” I did basketball for all 4 years→ jocks group

13. cultural capital: education is more important than anything in my family, due to my father’s educational attainment

14. Ethnocentrism: private armenian school, only associated with Armenians, differing cultures=inferior

15. cultural relativism: viewing cultures around me with an unbiased view and saw them as their own with their own standards/customs, make many friends outside of my ethnicity which educated me and allowed to experience the world from their culture’s perspective.

16. sensorimotor stage: sticking things in mouth as a baby→ learning what your environment is

17. preoperational stage: using words to communicate and to create an understanding, “no” “yes” “why”

18. concrete operational stage: think logically and rationally → middle school

19. formal operational stage: think abstractly about the things I came across as challenges in my life→ taking challenging courses
