    I wanted to make a quick sideline comment. After watching the videos and discussing the possible academic levels of these students, I wouldn't be surprised if some of those classes (or more than we think) are "average" students. I'm interning in a seventh grade classroom right now, and in both discussions and writing I'm hearing
    answers, questions and reflections of the level of the videos we watched. So I don't want to jump on a bandwagon and say that only honors students are capable of the caliber work that we saw on the videos. I'll be the one to defend the "regular" kids.
