Hani Obeidat and Mohammad  Obeidat, Yarmouk University, Jordan.


Abstract: The aim of this study was to reveal the effectiveness of ‎employing patriotic songs in creating national identity as well as ‎in stimulating students’ motivation. To achieve the aim of this ‎study, two tools were developed. The first consists of the scale ‎of national identity entailing (21) items, and the second is a ‎motivational scale considering (23) items. Validity and ‎reliability were verified for both scales. The two scales were ‎administrated on a sample of (66) students distributed into ‎groups: An experimental group consisting of (33) students that ‎have been taught by songs, and a control group including (33) ‎students that have been taught without songs. This study taught ‎‎"national symbols" unit from the civil and national studies ‎course of the seventh grade during the first semester ‎‎2018/2019. The results of the study indicated statistically ‎significant differences (α=0.05) on the motivational scale of ‎teaching method on the national identity scale, as well as, on the ‎motivation scale posttests, in favor of the experimental group.‎
