socialisation and identity
Socialisation and Identity
  • Socialisation is the term used for the process by which individuals learn and perform behaviour expected of them by society.
  • Agents of socialisation- people and groups that influence our self-concept, emotions, attitudes, and behaviour. Examples: Family, peers, and mass media
  • The process of Socialisation gives us our IDENTITY
  • What is your identity? Brainstorm all the things that you think have given you your identity.

Popular culture














Legal status



Identity- Who are you?
  • Personal identity is made up of all the factors that influence personal identity such as gender, age, etc. Legal identity is of crucial importance because it enables you to be entitled to education, social security, health care, to leave and return to your country, to prove your age, to find formal employment, to own property, to have a bank account, to have protection from the government against war and neglect, to get married, to vote and to receive inheritance. Those that do no have legal identity may have not enforceable human rights

  • You could find out what is happening in China by clicking on the Internet.
  • You can get Thai, Indian and Chinese food at Tesco.
  • Pop down the high street and you will see workers from Poland, Portugal and other countries.

How has identity changed? Brainstorm your ideas.


We can no longer predict patterns of behaviour. The value systems influencing action (norms) are so unpredictable and diverse that we cannot generalise about motivations for actions.

Features of a Post-modern Society
  • Superficial- e.g. television advertisements that are about creating an image of a lifestyle not a product.
  • Ahistorical- Fatboy Slim mixes music from several generations
  • Timeless- e.g. films that bear no resemblance to current affairs.
  • New technologies allow us to engage in events without needing to be aware of the background. E.g. building a computer.
