This assignment is chapter 1 of a dissertation. Chapter 1 must cover all sections listed below. There is a
chapter 1 draft and prospectus attached to these instructions. Below are all the sections that should be in
chapter 1. In the draft some of the sections are missing and the writing will have to use all the information
provided to complete those sections. Please use the examples of qualitative dissertations attached to guide
you on expectations in chapter 1. Most of chapter 1is completed except for a few sections. Some sections that
are already completed needs to be expounded on. The title of the study is Resource Deprived: Human Service
Professionals Perspectives on Resources Needed In Urban Education. This study is for a human service PhD
program so everywhere that says school social worker or social worker needs to be replaced with the word
human service professional and/or school based human service professional. Also, where you see the word
African American needs to be replaced with the term Black. The writer should expect to submit several
revisions because it must go through an approval process with a committee, and I also must review it before
submitting it. This chapter needs to be extremely thorough but also clear and concise. The chapter should be
approximately 20 pages. If more is needed, please let me know. Since I have completed more than have of the
requirements for pages and content, I was instructed by paper help administrators to order a 15-page project.
However, I am requesting at least 20 pages be completed. using all the information I have attached.
Chapter 1: Introduction to the Study
*** Background of Study
PLEASE USE ALL REFERENCES FROM THE CHAPTER 1 DRAFT & THE PROSPECTUS TO WRITE THIS
The purpose of a dissertation background/history section is to give the reader the relevant facts about your
chosen dissertation topic so that they understand the material or case that you will write about later and how it
links to your theoretical question.
It aims to contextualize your study and to explain its relevance. The background chapter will explain how your
work adds to and builds upon existing academic studies.
the dissertation background/history should illustrate your concepts, questions, and theory.
Your background section should relate to your research topic in question; this requires you to make explicit
links between the stories you tell and the questions and theoretical approaches you are using.
To do this, try to ensure a tight fit between this and the proposal’s other sections. Your history should be the
empirical embodiment of your theoretical section. If, for example, you are writing on indigenous land rights
struggles in Bolivia, you should not just include a history of events, but a history that is tightly linked to your
theoretical concerns and the research question you are asking. Trace the major actors, sources of change, and
point to potential outcomes. If you do this, your history section offers a chance to expound on (for the benefit of
others’ understanding) the broader topic through the details of your story.
The dissertation history/background should demonstrate your experience, knowledge, and passion.
What you write about and how you write can reveal a great deal about your knowledge and interest in your
subject. This is true in all parts of your proposal, but perhaps most so in this section.
Use the background section as an occasion to show the depths of your knowledge of the topic by
demonstrating your fluency in accepted understandings and literature as well as your fresh insights and
