Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Pajanimals are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in a house with their off-screen mother and father. They reside primarily in their bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they complete their nighttime routine of brushing teeth and conversing quietly before falling to sleep. The quiet time, always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem, such as overcoming shyness, making a new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the social/emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced throughout the adventure. The children return home in time to get ample rest, confident about facing their issues when they awaken the following day.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Now Eat This w/Rocco Dispirito is a different version of a cooking show-different in that the emphasis is on families and changing a family's behavior and cooking culture with the goal of making the family's kids healthier. Families with children or families who want to change their caloric intake habits with the result of greater over all health are well served to watch the program. There are plenty of numbers and nutritional facts to accompany each family's nutritional makeover and the appeal to the 13-16 year-old audience lies in the immediate nature of food and the drive of curiosity to be smarter and better informed (especially to be the smartest in the family at meal times). The data on nutrition, including fat, carbohydrates, and calories, are presented hand drawn on an old-school slate and blackboard-a original and less intimidating way to present facts to an audience. The facts are reinforced by large graphics, which come in as alerts. This style of information matches the gentle but firm personality of host Rocco Dispirito who prods families in the gentlest of ways-reminding families consistently that children are an asset as well as a responsibility when it comes to food preparation. A nice touch is that the camera spends time in the home of the families in each episode instead of just bringing the family to the kitchen set. For engagement of a young audience and for the goal of behavior modification, this is an excellent approach. A young audience likes peers in their programs and the presence of high school age children gives it cache for middle school viewers. The climax of each program is nicely built to feature children as the ultimate judges-watching the children eat and evaluate familiar dishes prepared in a healthier way. Children don't filter in the kitchen! There are not the usual structural elements to help a young audience retain and reflect on information-quizzes, repetition and reinforcement, and chance for independent thinking. But the hook of food and gratification are dependable ways to hold the middle and high school audience-a strategy that advertisers have used for years. Now Eat This! is a healthier and more educational use of that strategy.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Teens for Living Healthy and Rewarding Lives - Early and middle adolescence is an exciting yet a challenging period in one's life. Adolescents across the demographic spectrum and from all walks of life grapple with a number of pivotal but normal developmental milestones, such as preparing for more independence and responsibility, and experiencing change in relationships with family and peers. With increased self reliance, young people make more of their own choices. And all the while, one cannot overlook that they grow in a dynamic, diverse, and complex world that offers both opportunities and social challenges. The goals of the series are to encourage the audience to: (1) explore, discover, and learn strategies to achieve personal dreams; (2) learn about the personal attributes important for achieving dreams; (3) explore volunteerism as an opportunity to build character and to uncover personal passions; and (4) gain knowledge about life skills necessary to "Live Life and Win!".

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Lazy Town encourages fitness and healthful habits for preschool children. In the imaginary setting of Lazy Town, characters' eating and fitness habits are linked to problem solving in their world. The lead character is Stephanie, a young girl who guides the audience through the story as she and her friends ("human" puppets) and her Uncle (Mayor Milford Meanswell) navigate life within Lazy Town. Robbie Rotten, the underground spy and influencer who personifies the ethos of Lazy Town, is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids have difficulty with Robbie Rotten, Sportacus, a gymnast/athlete prepared to answer any call for help, comes to the rescue from his home in a zeppelin-like aircraft that hovers over earth. The underlying themes of Lazy Town stress the importance of eating "sports candy" (aka fruits and vegetables), always obtaining sufficient sleep, and going outside to engage in a wide range of physical activities including playing games, competing athletically, and even building forts and play structures.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Noodle and Doodle, an instructional series, features creating art projects and cooking projects around a specific theme. Host, Sean, drives around in a double-decker bus fully equipped with art supplies and a kitchen, ready for any assignment. The projects encourage parent engagement and often feature families working together to make something to display within the child's home. Sean's side-kick, Doggity, is an ever-faithful beagle who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe, set in a kitchen full of prank playing animated characters. The art projects typically promote utilizing recycled materials in order to demonstrate that creativity can transform something intended for one purpose into something that achieves a completely different goal.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Poppy Cat, based on the book series by Lara Jones, models the use of imagination and storytelling to encourage creative thinking in viewers. Each episode features the narrator Lara, reading a story about Poppy Cat, to her own cat (who is also named Poppy). She weaves an exciting tale following her imagination, which leads her to distant lands reached by boat, plane, hot air balloon or train. Each story features Poppy Cat, as the leader of a group of animal friends, a resident bully Egbert the badger, and other occasionally recurring characters. A prevailing message emerges within each episode to be nice to your friends and always work together. There remains an overarching implicit message within every episode as well: think creatively and exercise your mind through reading and storytelling - for these activities always lead to enjoyment and adventure.

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.

He begins with a problem that vexes him and daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to different places around the world, providing him with an experience to help solve his problem when he returns home. Justin is accompanied by two imaginary friends throughout his adventures; Olive, a knowledgeable playmate, and Squidgy, the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Some examples of Justin's lessons involve learning that it takes focus to achieve success, our failures can teach what we need to do to succeed next time, or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find an alternative way to achieve your goal. Justin promotes self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.
