  1. Teacher chooses a brief, challenging, and awesome text
  2. Teacher reads the entire text aloud with appropriate expression while the students listen and follow along.
  3. Group rereads the text using echo reading (i.e. the teacher reads a sentence or paragraph aloud and the group reads it back, which continues through the text)
  4. The group chorally rereads the entire text
  5. Students partner within the group to duet read the text 6. The group performs the practiced text to the teacher or other adult at school
