Mansour Fahim, Ogholgol Nazari

Abstract


Not few literature attribute great significance to enhancing critical thinking skills. However, emancipator role of it is not often acknowledged and practiced by teachers and researchers. The same is true about action research as its emancipatory role is underemphasized. In other words, although both action research and critical thinking can lead to transformative pedagogy; they are both practiced by reflective practitioners. Reviewing the related literature, this paper highlights such roles of action research and critical thinking.
