Hi, quick citation question.

For this paper, two pages are summarizations of two different articles (as per professor's instructions). I'm using the Chicago citation style, and the manual isn't helping me at all. Should I cite after every paragraph? Every sentence? Am I OK just indicating where the summaries start and stop with footnotes, or is that a no-no?

(the manual is just telling me to cite ideas that aren't mine, which would be pretty much every sentence for the first two pages. I don't want to have 30 citations a page or anything...)

I'm just not used to citing straight out summaries of articles.
