Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 9th Period is a weekly half-hour drama series for teens that teaches positive consequences of thought and action when combined with friendship's effective influences. This series is comprised of three friends who meet every day after school to discuss the day's events. Their exchanges are witty and on par with the subject matter of the social interaction that today's children experience. These three friends are more than friends, they are amateur sleuths. Each show presents a mystery that the children solve by the end of that show. Problem solving, working together toward a common goal, ethics, and morals are conveyed through the thoughts, words, and actions of these three characters: Peyton, Connor, and Meg. Every child will see him/herself in these characters. Peyton, Connor, and Meg share their daily trials and triumphs as they face the following together: bullies-both cyberspace and in your face- thievery, learning difficulties, family conflicts, adversity in and out of the classroom, homelessness, hidden agendas in places as small as the schoolyard to their favorite restaurant, and as large as the town itself. Children will see their worlds mirrored on the small screen. They will also observe alternative ways to handle stress, learning difficulties, and the variety of endless manners that the group mentality, when positively united, can spread good in the world.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. The Real Winning Edge seeks to expose youth to other youth who have consistently made the behavioral choices that have helped them to have a greater sense of internal significance and acceptance, which results in a more self directed stable personality. They are more able to negotiate the "challenges" inherent in life. The youth who are chosen to be profiled on the series are chosen for their adoption of pro-social values and principles that have become the ethos of their behavior. Thus the characteristics demonstrated by the stories of these youth give rise to adherence to these sound choices that have given them "the real winning edge" in life, such as the following: discovering where their talents lie, and their pursuit of developing that "gift", developing an appreciation for honesty as a fundamental part of social responsibility to others. Youth interviews demonstrate a real sense of compassion and concern for other people no matter what the person's station in life might be. Developing a sense of self discipline by learning to balance school work with social activities, friends and developing their sense of mission and purpose in life. Developing a sense of internal acceptance that allows them to stand against activities that can hurt themselves as well as others, such as substance abuse, violence, promiscuous sex, etc. The Real Winning Edge promotes the values through these very engaging positive youth role models, who are introduced by celebrities in the same talent field as the youth. The celebrities reinforce the values by calling attention to these youths' qualities as they are exhibited in the program.
