60second Recap®

This video library contains videos that summarise books, elaborate on the context of the story, and is aimed at teenagers to help them engage with books, and the book recap can act as a 'book trailer'.

Students are also invited to make their own book recap (helping them to prioritise their thoughts) and post them to the ClubRecap subsection. Another subsection is 'RecapResource', which features tips on reading, writing, and how students can make their own recap: dictionary of terms, how to write a paper and 'Lights Camera Recap'.
