Acculturation seminar

Today you will engage in conversation with one or two classmates and talk about your acculturative experiences.  After talking for a short while about your cultural worlds, come up with 20 questions that you think would best be used to get to know how someone has gone through acculturation.  Once you have your 20 questions write them out to hand in along with answers to the following questions:  according to Berry's framework which strategy do each of you adopt, and why?

The framework used by John Berry for acculturation is as follows:
