This document contains two inservice presentations. Each presentation has a full script with transparencies, handouts, graphs, and a list of materials needed for the presentation. The first presentation describes eight ideas common to both mathematics and reading namely, that: (1) a comprehensive instruction program is needed; (2) educators teach students, not mathematics or reading; (3) mathematics/reading should be made relevant to the learners; (4) mathematics/reading is a thinking process; (5) mathematics/reading is a language communication process; (6) the learning of mathematics/reading proceeds from the concrete to the abstract; (7) mathematics/reading is seeing relationships; and (8) involvement in the learning process is critical to success in mathematics/reading. The second presentation discusses eight recommendations by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. Six references are listed. (YP)
