Acculturation occurs when immigrants are pressured to adopt the cultural behaviors and values of their new land. The melting pot model of acculturation suggests that immigrants who quickly adopt the dominant group’s culture will have less acculturation stress. However, proponents of the bicultural theory believe that immigrants who maintain their traditional values and customs while adapting to the mainstream culture experience less acculturation stress. Explain which model you think makes more sense; provide examples of circumstances when one model offers a better explanation than the other, and vice versa.
