oh good! i only have two or three sources also...i think it's ok, as long as they show that you're "joining a conversation" (as Katie would say)

My ears are burning here in otherwise chilly Brattleboro, VT! I don't know about actual numbers of sources--that's something you should ask your instructor--but I agree with Emily (surprise!) :). Here are my .02 on Jenna's questions about nitty-gritty stuff:
The tense question is tricky, especially when you're doing something like Jenna's project: a social-science-y study combined with a kind of humanities-ish textual analysis. You could definitely just use past tense for the whole thing. Or, if past alone feels weird to you, I think you could use past tense when you talk about events (you recorded an interview, Jack consulted with three students), but present tense when/if you do close readings of moments in the consultations ("'QUOTE OF MOMENT IN THE CONSULTATION.' Here, Jack relies on his belief in the value of process as he suggests to the student to consider revising...") That kind of fits with looking at the consultations themselves as texts you are analyzing to reveal implicit values & principles. And I think you could use your cover letter to explain whatever choice(s) you made about tense.
About appendices: In my recollection, you can just label them "Appendix A" or whatever at the top of the page, and then do something like "I gave him a questionnaire (see Appendix A)." I bet the Cuba book at SWS has more specific instructions, though.

I was just seeking this info for some time. After six hours of continuous Googleing, at last I got it in your web site. I wonder what is the lack of Google strategy that do not rank this kind of informative sites in top of the list. Generally the top websites are full of garbage.
