Great start! I like the setup of your first page. Remember to change the Works Cited to the new format that we talked about today.

Time for details. You have this page set up nicely. You should also add footnotes for specific citations, but the work cited page is a nice way to have all the references together. Don't forget the section of treatment/research etc. You have a lot of work to do, but I know you have some things written down. I just need to see it here. You seem to be working well together and I think you will end up with a nice project if you get the details done.
