Drafting the Background Section
For this week’s discussion, you will present a draft of the background section of your project. This section will build upon the introduction and explain in detail the problem that you are studying. In our example of postrelease employment, the background section would include data that define the problem: recidivism, unemployment among parolees, and perhaps some input from actual parole officers about the difficulties faced by parolees and the effects of those difficulties. Be sure to incorporate feedback provided by the instructor from your Week 2 Project.
