Primary Arabic Overview
The MOE curriculum for Arabic language is compulsory for all phases for the Arabs and Non-Arabs students.
The curriculum aims to develop independent and competitive individuals who lead their learning journey by voicing their opinions without fear. Students are expected to become caring and compassionate individuals who are ready to take over anything that comes their way through a curriculum featuring structured play, self-regulation, inquiry, and performance-based tasks.
Teaching the MOE curriculum to our students will gain an understanding of the UAE’s heritage which helps enhance mutual understanding, peaceful co-existence, and cross-cultural harmony and tolerance, and keep the UAE National Identity as a clear focus.
The Arabic curriculum will introduce students to, and immerse students in, Arabic literature and Arab achievement as well as everyday communication and the functional language.
The curriculum will endeavor to engender ‘proficient users’ of Arabic with: · high levels of well-paced spoken interaction in the classroom · access to prose (fiction and nonfiction) and poetry · exploration of idioms, proverbs and approaches to storytelling.
All Phase comprises Year 2 to Y13. The subject of Arabic is including reading, comprehension, speaking, listening, writing, and grammar, which may be infused with the study of Islamic and Social studies in lessons through the use of the MOE curriculum. In all phases, students’ progress and attainment are monitored through the Cognitive Abilities Test (ABT), Measurement of Academic Progress (MAP), and Internal benchmarks that are used from the curricular resources to support and triangulate student data based on curricular standards for each grade. In addition, assessments are administered for each subject to check that skills and objectives have been achieved.
