Students’ Involvement Level in Arabic Language Textbook Communication for Cycle One in the United Arab Emirates
The current study aims to identify students’ level of involvement in the Arabic language textbook content provided in cycle one within the United Arab Emirates by addressing two questions: (i) What is the student's level of involvement in the scientific materials contained in Arabic language textbooks for cycle one within the United Arab Emirates? (ii) What is the student's level of involvement in the language activities contained in Arabic language textbooks for cycle one within the United Arab Emirates? A descriptive-analytical approach was employed with Romey’s formula as an instrument and framework to ascertain students’ involvement level in textbooks containing scientific materials and language activities post-instrument validity and reliability. The study sample encompassed 16 scientific lessons and 52 language activities from the first cycle of Arabic language textbooks. Frequencies and percentages were employed in the statistical treatment. The study concluded that the involvement coefficient of language activities did not fall within the proposed range for grades one, two, and three but fell within the acceptable range for grade four.
