Abstract

This study aimed to identify the extent to which Citizenship values are included in Arabic-language textbooks for the intermediate stage, and teachers' awareness of them in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). In this study, the researchers used a descriptive-analytical approach. Study tools consisted of a list of citizenship values, the presence of which values these textbooks were analyzed for, in addition to a 20-item questionnaire that was administered to 140 teachers. The results showed that a total of 214 instances of citizenship values were contained in the Arabic-language textbooks, with representation of various values. The results also showed that Arabic-language teachers’ awareness of the citizenship values included in those textbooks are at a high level, with an average ±standard deviation of 3.67 ± 1.18. The study recommends that citizenship values should be included as an independent subject textbook in the educational curriculum.
