Although 60 second recap is a site of US origin, it could be very useful for promoting reading and showing creative examples of ways students can respond to texts. Basically, 60 second recap is a site that makes films that summarise texts such as Animal Farm, Jane Eyre, Of Mice and Men, Hamlet and Pride and Prejudice.
Users don’t need to sign up to gain access to the videos, however, those who do join can add their responses to the chosen texts and even request 60 second recaps to be filmed for specific texts.
Thanks to Joyce Valenza for this link.
