Gender Gap- the pattern in which women are more likely to support Democratic candidates Political Participation- the activities used by citizens to affect the selection of political leaders Protest- a form of political participation designed to create change through dramatic tactics Civil Disobedience- form of protest based on a decision to break a law believed to be unjust Short Answer: 1. Describe the difference between a liberal ideology and a conservative ideology . Give an example of each. Liberal ideology supports a wide scope for the central government and often involves policies to promote equality, while conservative ideology supports a less active scope of government. An example of liberal ideology is the concept of Medicare, in which the government taxes wealthier businesses and persons in order to provide medical care for people who cannot afford insurance. An example of conservative ideology is the ability to pray in schools, for they believe the government should not be able to restrict the everyday lives of US citizens. 2. Describe the concept of Political Socialization in the US. Explain the role of family, mass media, and the school system involved in this process. Political socialization is the process by which individuals learn and internalize a political lens of how the world around them is organized. Family influences this by teaching children about different political topics as they grow up. Mass media can affect political socialization because average grade schoolers spend more time watching TV than they spend in school, and the information presented on the news and in TV shows can greatly influence both them and adults. The school system influences political socialization by promoting national loyalty and educating citizens to allow them to make better political choices.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
