Reading Apprenticeship at TCC: Readers Strategy Lists (RSL)

TCC faculty guide about reading apprenticeship resources and techniques

Readers Strategy Lists (RSL) - Definition and Use

Readers Strategy Lists (RSL) are lists of strategies that good readers use when decoding, deciphering and comprehending a text passage.  RSLs are useful because they provide a common language for talking about reading.  RSLs point out that different strategies are used with different types of reading. When a student reads a non-fiction textbook, they use different strategies than when they read fiction or when they read test questions.
