Children’s Programming as Socialization

Children’s Programming as Socialization

ALWAYS use the D.A.D. (Define, Apply, Discuss) method in completing your assignments. In other words, always (1) use and DEFINE relevant sociological concepts, theories and methods, (2) APPLY it/them to a specific example from our text or current events, and finally (3) DISCUSS the significance or consequences (think “life chances”) of your argument.

Be sure you always answer all questions posed.
