Competent readers are those who have adequate strategies to deal with different types of texts. Strategic capability does not occur naturally in most readers. For this reason, it is necessary to develop persistent and transversal training programs: With all disciplines and for all teachers committed to improving the academic profile. When training the strategies, the different levels of representation must be taken into consideration: The text base (micro/macro structure) and the situation model. Of the reading strategies set, the metacognitive ones are the ones that stand out most for their potential to improve and regulate the reader processes. It is recommended that when selecting the strategies, a flexibility criterion should be used, since on each occasion the teacher is the one who must select those that best suit the characteristics of the students and the diversity of the texts. Depending on the theoretical approaches, the strategies are also diverse.
