Child Development and Educational Studies (CDECE) 48 Socialization Report

Purpose: To explore how the contexts of your life have shaped the person you are today and to reflect on how your own personal socialization context is related to the theories and concepts you have been introduced to in our class.

Skills: In writing this paper you will practice the important skill of applying child development theory to a real-life example (in this case- your own development).

Knowledge: This assignment will help you to build an understanding of the following: 

  • The concept of “context”
  • Bioecologial Theory
  • The development and impact of attachment.
  • The major socializing agents in a child’s life and their impact.


Step 1: Read chapters 1 and 2 in your text and explore the supporting resources the in our Canvas site.

Step 2: Respond to each of the following prompts

#1: Write a summary that describes your family or caregivers (who you grew up with) and a general overview of how your experiences growing up have impacted how you live your life today.

#2: Connecting to chapter 2, describe your experience with attachment. Did you have one or multiple attachment? To who? How do you know? Did you experience any barriers to attachment? If so which ones? If not, why do you believe so?

#3: Describe your current microsystem and how the different people or systems within it interact (mesosystem)

#4: Identify and describe at least 4 agents of socialization (examples at the bottom of page 5) and provide examples of the influence of each in your own life.

Each question should be listed (you can just cut and paste the questions into your document)

Each question should be answered in complete, standardly formatted paragraphs with details and examples

References to the textbook, supporting resources, and lecture materials should be cited accurately.
