this week’s discussion offers us a chance to connect one of the four acculturation models to our interviewee’s experience. We have covered the U-curve model, Osland model, Kim’s adaptation model and surprise and sense-making model.
specifically, in your posting you should address:
1) claim: which acculturation model do you think as best fitting your interviewee’s experience traveling from a different culture to the US?
2) definition: please briefly describe your chosen acculturation model, including the major steps.
3) example: please provide a detailed description of at least one example from your interview experience, with communication details.
4) explanation: why you think this example shows to you that your chosen model best reflects your interviewee’s experience?
