1.School plays an important role in our socialization. Think about the way socialization works: What are some of the things we learn from schooling (e.g., the first years in elementary school), and how does this learning differ from what we are taught by our teacher? How are things like gender performance shaped in school?
2.Parents of different social classes socialize children differently. For example, middle-class parents are more likely to stress independence and self-direction, whereas working-class parents prioritize obedience to external authority. Using this example, how does socialization through families potentially reproduce social inequality?
3.You are a university student, but you also wait tables at a restaurant. One evening, my wife and I by chance turn out to be one of your customers. Use role theory to describe the interaction (and possible role conflict) that ensues.
