jonesvalleyteachingfarm Today was the start of PBL Week for an Avondale Elementary fifth grade class! PBL (project-based learning) is a learning approach that has students spend an extended period of time investigating and responding to a complex challenge or question. For this PBL project, the challenge is to design and build a structure that can hold and sustain lots of plants indoors. This morning the students visited Birmingham International to study the airport's beautiful "living wall" for inspiration. They'll spend the rest of the week at our downtown farm... we're excited to see what they come up with! #projectbasedlearning #instagrambham #schoolgarden #bhmcityschools 2d

jonesvalleyteachingfarm A legit question posed by a fifth grader. How many of you farmers out there have TVs (or TV-like devices)? #wendellwednesdays #urbanag #schoolgarden 7d

jonesvalleyteachingfarm "I believe that feedback thrives in cultures where the goal is not 'getting comfortable with hard conversations' but normalizing discomfort. If leaders expect real learning, critical thinking, and change, then discomfort should be normalized: 'we believe that growth and learning are uncomfortable so it's going to happen here—you're going to feel that way. We want you to know that it's normal and it's an expectation here. You're not alone and we may ask that you stay open and lean into it.'" @brenebrown #wendellwednesdays Illustation by @handhandstudio 4w
