In the mood for something funny? Then pick up a satire—but be prepared to squirm a little, too. That’s because the point of satire isn’t just to make you smile ... but to make you think. Here's the 60second Recap® on why satire isn't just a laughing matter.

Check out 60second Recap's complete seven-video mini-series, "Write the greatest essay ever! (Or just an essay that won't put your teacher to sleep)".

Recap Resource also offers a video-based Dictionary of Terms with explanations of key literary concepts--such as metaphor, symbols, motifs--and a video tutorial on How to Make Your Own Recap-style videos. Subjects covered include picking your topic, focusing your presentation, writing your script, editing yourself, propsgraphics, and what to do once you're done!
