11.1 Mock Dissertation Chapter One Introduction
Overview: As you observed in the LIVE session, there is a connection between chapter three and chapter one. Therefore, as an extension of our week in the mock chapter three from last week, we will write a mock chapter one. For the sake of preparation,   Like we discuss in class, each university has unique parameters for what they expect in chapter one, so you may see papers from other universities that look slightly different.
