Summary: Science teacher Dorroh describes his experience learning and practicing interdisciplinary writing and teaching methods as a participant in Mississippi's WONDER project.

School districts don't have to hire experts who charge exorbitant fees to motivate us to do better jobs, because we are the experts. And when teachers come together, especially in a relaxed setting away from school, and talk about what's happening as we begin to incorporate more writing into our science classes, we can't help but improve our teaching.
