مستخلص المنشور: 

The main purpose of the present study is to review and analyze the relationship between reading comprehension and critical thinking. The specific theatrical issues being discussed include schema theory as a rational premise for the connection between reading comprehension and critical thinking, cognitive development processes, critical thinking: its nature and definitions, critical thinking: skills and dispositions, and critical thinking and reading comprehension. The results revealed that: (1) there is well established relationship between reading comprehension and critical thinking, (2) schema theory provides a rational premise for that relation, and (3) there is no consensus regarding the definition of critical thinking which might be interpreted as a lack of an accepted framework for critical thinking.
