60 Second Recap

60 Second Recap is an amazing site full of short {60 second} videos about the plot, themes, characters, 
and other aspects of favorite classic literature
 commonly studied in middle and high schools. 
 {Animal Farm, Beowulf, Lord of the Flies, McBeth, etc.}

The videos aren't meant to replace reading the books, 
more to get kids interested in reading the books and start conversations about the books. 

Each video is like a conversation with a real-life girl named Jenny. 
 She does a great job of talking to the kids in their language
 and makes each book sound interesting, understandable, and fascinating.

The site also features an area for video responses from users 
{so kids can make their own videos}, 
and another for users to request titles for recapping.

Here's a great video to show you a little more about this fabulous site!

There is even a 60 Second Recap app!
