  • SECONDARY
  • Town of Maycomb
  • Socialization is a learning process that continues over the course of our lives through interactions and relationships, allowing us to become capable members of society. We can develop a 'self' from forming an identity. A newcomer to a group or society must be prepared to think, feel, and act appropriately to the standards of that specific group.
  • Dill
  • I'm Charles Baker Harris!
  • I'm Scout!
  • I'm Jem.
  • Primary socialization occurs during childhood, generally from your family. It provides us with a foundation of values and attitudes, how to act and think--for example, 'keep your hands to yourself'. Secondary socialization occurs during the rest of your life, from the public--friends, teachers, strangers. This is where you learn specific roles and more specific social protocol--for example, 'it isn't appropriate to talk to authority the same way you talk to friends.'
  • Boo Radley
  • Boo Radley
  • In 'To Kill A Mockingbird', the primary agent of socialization for Scout is Atticus and Calpurnia because those are the people who raised her. The secondary agent is the people in the town of Maycomb--Miss Maudie, for example. NOW, ONTO SOME EXAMPLES OF SOCIALIZATION!
  • Miss Caroline
  • Dill introduces himself to Jem and Scout as his full name. In Maycomb, the children (at least) go by nicknames, so Scout and Jem tease him for such a big name. Dill is new to Maycomb and has not been socialized this way--to introduce himself by 'Dill' instead--because he is from Meridian, Mississippi.
  • Learning the horror stories about Boo Radley wasn't through primary socialization for Scout and Jem because Atticus doesn't gossip. They instead learned from secondary socialization through the other children and some adults in Maycomb. The town itself has created this scary identity for Boo Radley, related to the suggestion of him being institutionalized, and the stigma surrounding that.
  • Because Miss Caroline was not born in Maycomb, she has not been socialized primarily to know that the Cunningham's are poor farmers, or that the Ewell's only attend the first day of school. She is being socialized secondarily by Scout and Little Chuck, while she is secondarily socializing Scout that talking back to teacher's is not acceptable.
  • You're shamin' him, Miss Caroline!
