Acculturation: A Data-Driven Learning Guide Go to Resource


Acculturation is the process whereby the norms, values, attitudes, and behaviors of people from one culture are modified as a result of contact with a different culture. Although acculturation is usually in the direction of a minority group adopting habits and language patterns of the dominant or host society, acculturation can be reciprocal--that is, the dominant group also adopts patterns typical of the minority group.

The goal of this module is to explore the assimilation and separation/ethnic competition models of acculturation. Crosstabulation will be used.
