Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. On the Spot was created by the award-winning producers of the long running Educational and Informational show, Animal Atlas, now in its seventh successful season of national syndication. Last year, the National Governors Association and Council of Chief State Officers released the Common Core State Standards Initiative, an attempt to set a national curriculum to bridge the standards gap between states. The content of On the Spot, a 30-minute E/I program for teens ages 13+, is based on the Common Core State Standards. The show uses an entertaining on-the-street format to test how well young people know the information contained in their own national curriculum. Then, On the Spot explains the answer to each question. The pedagogical approach of testing first and explaining the answer second has been shown to enhance retention and understanding. On the Spot challenges viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music, and technology, and then teaches them the answer.

The content of On the Spot, a 30-minute E/I program for teens ages 13+, is based on the Common Core State Standards. The show uses an entertaining on-the-street format to test how well young people know the information contained in their own national curriculum. Then, On the Spot explains the answer to each question. The pedagogical approach of testing first and explaining the answer second has been shown to enhance retention and understanding. On the Spot challenges viewers to recall middle and high school knowledge about history, science, math, English, second languages, health, geography, art, music, and technology, and then teaches them the answer.
