SLJTeen’s sister newsletter, Curriculum Connections, recently ran a terrific article that’s perfect for high school seniors who are thinking about college—and for those of us who work with them. “The College Maze: From Application to Admission (And Beyond) offers a comprehensive round-up of titles that college-bound students, as well as their parents, caregivers, and counselors, won’t want to miss.college grad

The recommended list of books—which cover everything from choosing a major to guidance for students with disabilities—is bound to spark ideas for a book display in the high school library or for topics to discuss with teens at the public library. The article’s author, Alicia Eames, freelance librarian, editor, and writer, and frequent contributor to SLJ’s Curriculum Connections, also includes links to the titles’ websites, which offer addition information that you’ll find helpful. Want to round out this fine list of titles? Just do a little research on local college fairs and give the list to your students and their parents.
