 You will list a full reference for each source in alphabetical order by the first author’s last
name.

abstract or quote information. This is to be a summary of the main points of the article
written in your own words (paraphrasing). Summaries must include any research findings
discussed in the article.
 Use APA formatting (include a title page). A reference page is not needed since you are
already providing a full reference for each source above the summary.
