It's very weird, but 7th graders in my school are great THIS YEAR. The
current 8th in my school were not good last year when they were 7th graders,
but are fine now...I find generally it depends on the class. I found when I
do projects they like such as clay they are much better, so I do lots of clay
and 3D stuff. I also do a project where they design CD record covers....they
really get into that. When I have problems I talk to their advisors and a
call goes home. (It's an independent school so a little easier than public).
Good luck.
