Research on adolescent political and civic engagement has focused on a wide variety of socializing agents, including parents, school, peers, and the media. This study builds an explanatory model that connects macro-level (e.g., religion, education) and micro-level (parents, school curricula, and media) socialization agents. Using the ecological systems model of child development, the study shows a pattern of influence involving parents’ political engagement and civic engagement, as well as teens’ use of online political media. Media influence in the context of other factors is noted, along with the model’s implications for further research on political socialization.
