? Organized data gathered over Winter Term- I reviewed/transcribed all of the data/interviews that I acquired over Winter Term. I discussed these findings with Dr. Swimelar to note any follow-up questions that we may want to ask this summer.
? Secondary Sources/Articles- We found several new sources that I read and analyzed. We then worked to integrate these new findings into our previous draft of the lit review.
? Lit Review Drafts- I completed about three new drafts of the literature review, working with adding new sources and the order/layout of the review. While it is still not complete, I feel much better about the draft we have now!
? Research Design- We revisited our research design to make sure that we feel comfortable with all of the variables and we know what to ask/research while we are in the field this summer. We also used several variables that were used in the new articles we found.
? Preparation for Summer- We have made tentative plans for the summer to conduct interviews with NGOs and government officials.
