TGIF! The weekend is finally here and the Choices Magazine/Teenbeing team has rounded up our picks for the best of this week’s web.
1. This Georgia school clerk’s amazing display of strength and compassion that saved countless lives after a young man entered Ronald E. McNair Discovery Learning Academy with a gun on Tuesday.
3. Can LinkedIn help your teen with the college selection process? The popular career-oriented social network is hoping so—it lowered its age limit to 14 earlier this week, part of its “University Pages” launch.
4. This Georgia Tech sophomore’s welcome speech to the incoming freshman was full of intensity, and the theme music to 2001: A Space Odyssey.
5. In case you’re wondering what teens might be obsessing over right at this moment, they’re likely: gearing up for Sunday’s MTV VMAs; still re-watching One Direction’s performance on The Today Show (an estimated 18,000 fans showed up this morning!); and/or making plans to see Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
