Definitely read this if you teach High School English!

This site called 6o Second Recap provides a recap summary of classic novels in a unique video format...For each novel, the teacher/actress has created 6-8 short videos covering plot, theme, characters, context, etc... It does not tell the whole story, but rather serves as a reminder of the book that might have been read at an earlier time... It seems like it would be great to study for a final exam to recall the basic elements of a particular novel. They are well done. The only drawback is that the site does not have a ton of books yet... only 30 so far, but all popular classics. The creator says she will add a new book each week. Its really well done. Heres a sample from Video 3 of Great Expectations:
