Using William Scott's method, the components of political socialization have been measured by the representation of major terms including republicanism, tolerance, political legitimacy, political identity, critical pedagogy, social justice, political values of the Islamic revolution, economics, and good governance. According to the research findings of this analysis, three main patterns can be addressed: First, the most visible components of political socialization represented in the textbooks are the religious-political identity and political values of the Islamic Revolution, which have been inspired through the otherness and ideological critique of the Western political identities. Second, the textbooks are overwhelmingly allocated to represent the political and ideological elements of the Islamic Revolution of Iran; an approach which have neglected the elements of good governance and republicanism. Finally, the underlying conclusion of these research findings refers to the fact that the political values of the Islamic Revolution have been more significantly represented in the textbooks that its social and economic values.
