  1. You should look at the project sheet that Dr. Pamuk-Turner distributed to us, since she outlines exactly how she wants the sources formatted. Also, throughout your website, you have the in-text citations in parenthesis, but I believe she wants the sources numbered, with hyperlinked superscripts directed to this page.
