Who will be responsible for considering Peer Review Team and Instructor comments and preparing the final draft? b. Due Tues., Sept. 9: a tentative project plan with timelines . When must all research and interviews be complete in order to allow sufficient time for drafting the case study and submission of the first draft to the Instructor and your peer review team on Dec. 2nd? c. Communicate with your Peace Corps Volunteer (PCV) right away to introduce yourself and set up specific times for calls when the PCV is available for interviews. Also, find out when he/she will be able to check and respond to email. d. Decide whether there are other people who you might also wish to interview (e.g., the Peace Corps Regional Specialist for your region, a former Peace Corps volunteer, etc.) e. You will be preparing a country overview for your case study….so compile a view of the country and doing business in that country from public and Peace Corps sources. You should complete this before your first in-depth interview with your PCV so that you can have an informed discussion with him or her. f. Develop an interview guide/outline for each interview, including how you will introduce yourselves and your project and suggested plans for future communications. 1
