**Please use dissertation template provided in the attachment below to organize the paper**
**Please also use my Problem of Practice as a basis for how/what to write in Chapter 1- I am a pretty wordy, complex writer** **The Concept Proposal attached below was written by the writer, not myself.
**All sources are provided in my Concept Proposal**
**The 2 Pages do not include the acknowledgements section, title page, etc. that I will fill in, but if you could copy and paste the first sections from the general outline as given in the attached dissertation template I would so appreciate that** I believe I have paid the extra for the abstract page/table of contents, which is the majority of the first portion of the dissertation..Also I apologize for so much detail but I am nervous regarding this first major dissertation assignment. Thank you so much for your patience.
