You may have read about ASHS’ bread-baking efforts in previous blog entry ( http://propelschools.org/the-best-crumby-class-ever/) and we have another student-baker’s perspective on the experience:

Home Neighborhood: Braddock Hills
What have you learned?
I learn about all types of bread recipes that I can make on my own and bread making is a very good thing to do. Bread making is worth it because it can be a great experience. Also I learned how to score bread, I learned to make polish, which is fed sour dough starter, how bread making requires a lot of patience, and to make an oven fire, because that’s important for the bread so it can cook. Also you always have to check on the fire every 20 minutes.
What’s surprised you about it?
What surprise me about bread making is that if you really pay attention it’s so easy and you always have to follow the steps.
What you like about it?
I like how bread making can make a group of students that you barely know work so close and hard to make wonderful bread.
