Abstract: 

The present study deals with the socialization of the new generation of high school students and compares it with the socialization experiences of two previous generations. Considering such issues like identity crisis, cultural and generation gap and the like, the question is raised as to how socialization in present time, which aims at transferring cultural knowledge from the previous generation to the new generation, is different from the socialization of the previous two generations.
To answer the above research question, the theoretical background of the present study was inspired by two theories structuration and dual globalization. Based on the related literature and the available theories, two hypotheses were extracted from the given theoretical framework: first the weight of different socialization factors (family, schooling, peers, and the media) in three stages of traditional, initial and old model. Second, there is a relationship between the traditional socialization forces and the mode of socialization considering the virtual space.
In line with the topic and the research questions, the qualitative approach of in-depth interview used. The sample for the third generation was the male students of the first and second grades of senior high school from 2.12 and 19 district of Tehran. The sample of the first and the second generations were father and grandfather of the students (the third generation). The In sample size was 90, 30 from each generation.
