EDUC 1006: CHILD, FAMILY, AND COMMUNITY RELATIONSHIPS
Chapter 2 explains that children learn the ways of the society in which they live via traditions, rituals and routines, and symbols. Explain the differences between each of these and one way each contributes to children's knowledge of their own cultural group.
"Messages" from important people in their lives influence the outcomes of children's socialization experiences. For example, parents who allow their male child to play only with "boy" toys communicate a message that may influence their child's attitude about gender roles. Review the outcomes of socialization highlighted on pages 75-76 in your text. Choose three outcomes that are of most interest to you. Then, using examples, describe how early education, such as a preschool program, might influence each outcome.
