The coach and teacher identify a goal that focuses on students integrating sources into their research projects. This goal matches our criteria as it is standards-based, is aligned with the research writing unit, and is rigorous enough to sustain the coaching cycle. At one moment during the conversation, the teacher mentions MLA citation format but doesn’t land there. If she had, that would have been a better fit for a mini coaching cycle as it is a discrete skill, rather than broader intention for learning.
