Great video! One helpful observation about the reference: I believe the title of the book in the reference list should be italicized because it is a book and the state code is missing.

You're right on both counts. Sorry about that.

How do I cite two works by the same author inside the text? The author's name is Jean Cook and has two articles with different titles, one in 2011 and one in 2012. I am summarizing the findings from both articles so I am not quoting. Thank you

Still cite parenthetically even if you're summarizing. Since you include the year in your citation, you would cite the one (Cook, 2011) and the other as (Cook, 2012). I'm sorry it took so long to reply to your question.

so every single sentence that I paraphrasing from any source I have to add the end of sentence parentheses and put the source info unlike MLA style they add footnote in  the end. I appreciated your explanation. that what I understood.

Technically, yes.  Any time you use someone else's idea, you should cite it.  There are more artful ways of doing this if you're going to be citing one work over and over again, but to protect yourself from plagiarism claims, and to make it easy to verify the statements in your paper, cite every use of someone else's work.
