Abstract

This study aimed to identify how sixth-grade intermediate students’ in the United Arab Emirates are involved with the Arabic language textbook. The researcher employed a descriptive-analytical method to achieve this aim, using Romy’s formula to determine students’ levels of involvement with the textbook. This determination was made based on the presentation of their material and activities after verifying the validity and reliability. A total of 381 pages from sections of the textbook were analyzed during the 2019/2020 academic year. The study focused on 30% (114) of the total number of pages. The total number of activities on the analyzed pages was calculated (78). The study results showed that the coefficient of student involvement with the presentation of the educational material was 0.73, which is an appropriate value and a degree of participation that is higher than the acceptable academic limit and motivates students to conduct research and surveys. Regarding activities, the degree of involvement (0.684) was more significant than the educationally permissible limit, thereby giving the students opportunities to interact and participate. In light of these results, several recommendations and suggestions were made.
