International Education Studies, v9 n9 p146-156 2016
The present study aimed at exploring the concepts of the security education in the textbooks of the national and civic education of the higher primary stage in Jordan. It adopted the descriptive analytical method. The study sample consisted of the textbooks of the national and civic education for the basic eighth, ninth and tenth grades. To achieve the objective of the study, a form was prepared for the analysis of these textbooks which contained the security education concepts; (34) security concepts distributed over four areas: the intellectual security, the political security, the social security, and the economic security. The findings of the study showed that the textbook of the national and civic education of the tenth primary grade was of more inclusion of the concepts of security education than those of the eighth and ninth grades. Also, it was revealed that the extent of inclusion of the security education concepts in the textbooks of the national and civic education varies in the higher primary stage, while the level of sequence of these concepts included in these textbooks is low. Additionally, the findings showed that there were no statistically indicative differences in the level of integration of the security education concepts between the textbooks of national and civic education in higher primary stage in Jordan.
