1. Some typical agents of socialization are: family, school, religion, friends, relatives, and mass media. What agents of socialization have influenced you the most? Describe their influence on your attitudes, beliefs, values, or other orientations to life. How have they made you the person that you are today? 

2. The major components of social structure are culture, social class, social status, roles, groups, and social institutions.
