Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (17.1) On the Spot is a series tapping knowledge across a series of subject areas: geography, art, technology, science, math, history, language, music, and sports. It also addresses general cultural knowledge. The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals who are either of school age or adults past the age of high school graduation. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. These include self-esteem and frames in which students see learning occurring. By removing information from the academic silos where it is generally taught and moving it, literally, to the mall, it forces a synthesis that is difficult to achieve in an academic setting. The fact that correct answers are giving by diverse ethnicities and ages, by both genders, and not by stereotypes of smart people is essential. It means that anyone can own information. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non-academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star-and is demonstrated by every type of person.

British teen Sarah sees both sides of the war and doesn't like either, while American teen Gregory is a passionate defender of freedom and liberty. French orphan Henry, who's also taken in by Ben, may be younger than his new "big borther" and "big sister", but often sees most clearly. The series is packed with action, yet it confronts moral decisions head on. It's not concerned with the politics of history, but uses the drama of the events as a backdrop for the conflicts faced by its protagonists.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (17.1) On the Spot is a series tapping knowledge across a series of subject areas: geography, art, technology, science, math, history, language, music, and sports. It also addresses general cultural knowledge. The format is a series of seemingly random questions to individuals who are either of school age or adults past the age of high school graduation. There are three fundamental educational benefits to this format. First, it taps into fact retrieval in the curriculum. Second, and more important, it expands the information beyond fact retrieval. Third, and most important, it addresses what educators call non-cognitive factors for student success. These are factors that can measurably improve student achievement without specifically involving material to be tested. These include self-esteem and frames in which students see learning occurring. By removing information from the academic silos where it is generally taught and moving it, literally, to the mall, it forces a synthesis that is difficult to achieve in an academic setting. The fact that correct answers are giving by diverse ethnicities and ages, by both genders, and not by stereotypes of smart people is essential. It means that anyone can own information. The fact that young people will see this on television in a non-academic setting is also very important. Whatever the curriculum or information, knowledge becomes the star-and is demonstrated by every type of person.
