The education sector in the Sultanate of Oman steps accelerated rapidly towards all means of modern trends in the education process as compatible with the nature of the student as a target of President educational process, and do not conflict with the community cultural frameworks, intellectual, and social development.
Feared that the curricula are effective tool in achieving Education message, which is the link between the goals established in the educational system in all its components, so it should go by serious plans, and will be developed in accordance with the evaluation of a true and stable criteria that enable us to access the results as soon as possible.
Anyone who examines the curriculum and the Arabic language in general and dictation education as an integral part of the language, denominated head of its elements in particular, it will be clear that the education of dictation in the Sultanate is approved through specific educational philosophy and deliberate pace and results, where curriculum emphasizes the need to link nodes language other Arab reading, listening, language and expression, both oral and written, it is often taught in the shade of a reading of the texts through assessments of student literacy in the curriculum.
This trend in education dictation no doubt that it brings the idea of integrative curriculum, and every link serve other seminars, in addition to being effective application of the essence of language-based speech and writing simultaneously, as each affects the other.
It should be noted that literacy texts selected for the recruitment rules dictate are very carefully selected to include a clear idea of easy language, and clear on the building, so that understanding in preparation for writing the correct basis of the rule language (not dictate without understanding), as well as take into account the integration in presenting the idea that involve purposeful meaning, and moral guidance, socially and economically, and nationally, is undoubtedly correct education goals that seek to achieve through school.
And it is clear that education should not only dictate the rules spelling, but extends to the development and expansion of the idea of the student's culture and misunderstood, and the consolidation of national values in the hearts of students.
Dictation education in the curricula of the Sultanate is divided into two types .The first is educational in which the student learns rules of spelling through reading, and how to draw characters and words in the special combinations. The second type is the dictation test which is reflected in the way that the teacher dictates the pupils a good choice to meet the need of students, and cognitive fit, and give them a full picture without cost, and the students should write the paragraphs free of errors, the benefit of the claimants observations that have been dealt with in the quota dictation educational time for a script, preferably not to discuss the errors in which students share in the dictation test, but defer the teacher to study the new Taal, in which extensive discussion of the mistakes, and explained the reasoning and knows the rules spelling underlying errors in a class full.
If we look closely at the direction of education in the Sultanate prove beyond any doubt that the principle of vertical integration objectives, which begin a broad public, then divided and subdivided included in a planned and coordinated across grades and academic levels to serve the objectives of partial and overall objective is in the way. One of the objectives pursued by the Sultanate in the education of dictation, but not limited to enable students ownership of the Arabic language, and the control of the alphabet, words, sequences thereof consistent with the pattern of language and privacy, and to address common mistakes that often where scholars through read and write, as well as giving students such positive habits, and rules, attention, training senses of mastery and perfection and yielding to the right in writing, and expand wealth of language, and experience, and knowledge of Macedonia.
Since evaluation lead an effective role in improving the educational process, and pushing driven towards change, and to take the appropriate decisions and sound, so it is a promising step of the development steps, and certainly regardless of the motivation continuity, and achieve better quality results, it was important to have several methods of evaluating the lessons dictation in the curriculum, subdivided in three patterns which can gathered as follows:
1-Teacher gather pupils notebooks, and corrected them outside the classroom or within, by developing a distinctive trademark under the error and has to write above it the right answer, or left to the student the opportunity to search for the right word in a piece of dictation, which dictated by the teacher in advance, which can detect the pupils weaknesses and mistakes individually, but they keep delaying the students to get rid of their mistakes.
2-ask the teacher to pupil exchange notebooks inside room grade school, and then each student correct spelling error that occurred when his colleague placing under fault; because it claimed to stabilize the image in the mind of the student floor.
3 - The student correcting himself, the best way to increase the confidence of the student himself; for his involvement in the actual process of correction, in the shadows of two methods-the second and third-indispensable for the existence of teacher supervision and follow-up for students during the ongoing process of correction for orientation, guidance, and tracking mistakes. The truth is that the teacher about the three types used in evaluating the dictation is inevitable of them in the service of education, being the most effective, most efficient methods approved by educators, where instilled in the hearts of students the value of observation and exploration, as they learn the values of truthfulness, honesty, responsibility, and vigilance, and yielding to the correctness by differentiate between what should be written, and what should not be written.
In sum, what we have stated previously correct methods of dictation must be targeted educational verification aim of education, and take the society input to higher levels. ()
