The use of in text citations would be a good way to ensure that you do not plagiarize and will show that you are drawing examples from the required reading. You do not need to provide complete citations for the assigned books. If you choose to use any additional sources (which should not be necessary), please use APA citation format. You should work alone on this assignment, though you can discuss the books and questions with other students.
