60 Sec. Recaps – for digital types…

60 Second Recaps is a neat concept. You can find there most high school English literature – classic books like Animal Farm, Hamlet, To Kill a Mockingbird etc…. What’s cool is that they are explained in 4-6 neat 60 second recap videos. Think Coles Notes for the digital native!

The recaps are very engaging. However, she speaks quite fast for second language speakers, so filter as necessary. Still, they are done in very “social” language and would probably make life a lot easier for ESL students needing to know this material.

There are also other video resources. Literary terms are explained in some and there are also videos to help right term papers. Pretty neat for a high school ESL teacher or someone at an International school.

Here’s an example. From one of my fav. novels – Crime and Punishment. In this part, she explains the main character Raskalnikov.
