Internalization of Politeness Values Through Arabic Learning (Published)
Politeness is an important moral value for the young generation. Students are the young generation who are required to communicate with polite language and tone. A number of strategies have been implemented at schools to internalize politeness values in students’ daily life. However, limited studies have been conducted regarding politeness value integration through language teaching. This study studied the politeness value integration at a senior high school in Indonesia. This study use a qualitative approach in the data was gathered through direct observation, in-depth interviews, and written materials analysis. This study found that Arabic language teaching can be used to integrate politeness values through the use of Islamic teaching material. The school also provides support in creating social attitudes, especially politeness values n the school environment. This has been manifested in various Islamic teaching materials which both teachers and students used and discussed during Arabic teaching and learning. However, the school programs, especially the value of politeness internalization, have not yet been maximized and implemented because this study found the absence of planning (syllabus and lesson plans) for politeness values made by Arabic language teachers. It seems yet to become a priority activity.
