List your sources in the order in which they appear in your paper.  Use the AMA citation and reference style.

See the sample on the next page. WARNING – I totally made up the content and citations. Note that I have used quotation marks to indicate where I have used three or more words in a row from a source in the first citation. My second citation refers to a document, so no quotation marks were needed. I provided superscript in-text citations (example – 1) in both cases. Note also that the order in which the references appear in the text is the same in which they are listed among the references.

Special Quality: (2 pts)

This is a subjective category that the grader will judge based on organization, creativity, and whatever else is indicative extra effort and attention to the task.

In-text citation and reference Example

Resilience is the “…the capacity of a system, enterprise, or a person to maintain its core purpose and integrity in the face of… changed circumstances.”1 My present personal goal is to grow taller this year so I can see over fences. My public health goal is to have all cities in the US perform Health Impact Assessments before they pass self-destructive policies.2
