Storyboard Text

  • Socialization is a life-long process that enables us to create relationships within society. As humans, social interaction is a necessity. These relationships within society help us develop beliefs, values and attitudes. We learn what is acceptable and what is unacceptable within the society we live in. Socialization also helps us develop a self, this includes self-esteem and unique traits. This allows us to create an understanding of the world and the society we live in.
  • Primary: Primary socialization is the first relationships you develop as a child, this means interactions with immediate family members and relatives. Family has a very important influence on a child's life, as they help shape a child's identity. Our family helps us learn how to interact and behave acceptably, within the home and society. Secondary: Secondary Socialization is your relationships within society, this includes: school, work, media, religion and friends. This is a life long process, where you are constantly learning new values, beliefs and attitudes depending on the society you are living in. Secondary socialization also teaches us how to behave in certain social situations, if you have a temper tantrum when you are twenty, you will quickly realize that is unacceptable.
  • “Hush your mouth! Don’t matter who they are, anybody sets foot in this house’s yo‘ comp’ny, and don’t you let me catch you remarkin’ on their ways like you was so high and mighty! Yo‘ folks might be better’n the Cunninghams but it don’t count for nothin’ the way you’re disgracin‘ ’em—if you can’t act fit to eat at the table you can just set here and eat in the kitchen!”

  • This primary socialization between Scout and Calpurnia is crucial. She is teaching Scout a valuable lesson on how to treat others, even though they may do things differently then her. Just because Scout may be more privileged than Walter, does not mean she is better than him or has a right to judge the way he behaves or eats. Calpurnia is teaching Scout that not all families are the same and they may have different values than Scout.

  • This is an example of secondary socialization because, Miss Caroline is learning about her role in society in Maycomb. Her role is not to give Walter money, it is to teach him.
