Agents of Socialization 

We all are politically socialized by a  series of virtually countless directly political and indirectly  political experiences throughout our lives from childhood through adult  years. The agents of socialization that shape our political values and  beliefs result in the opinions we have about political issues, parties,  candidates for office, government and so much more.

  1. Think  about some of your own direct and indirect political socialization  experiences dating from your years as a child and through to the  present. Describe in detail one event, experience, or person that you  believe influenced how you think and feel politically. If you have  trouble, Refer to the Agents of Socialization content page for help.
  2. Next, ask  someone from a different generation the same question.  Tell us in about  the person you asked (relationship, age, education, occupation, etc.)  and describe in detail how he/she said they were politically influenced  to have the political perspective (values and beliefs) they shared with  you.
