(Digital sub-channel 20.2)WHADDYADO provides an excellent opportunity for teenagers to learn life lessons they likely are otherwise not open to receiving. What makes WHADDYADO such a valuable resource for teenagers is that it exposes them to real life situations. The reenactments give the audience the opportunity to develop important life saving skills. By exposing the audience to perilous situations that have actually occurred, then, using interviews with the participants, and instructions from experts, teenagers are shown what the proper reaction should be when faced with similar life-threatening circumstances this show is perfectly positioned to educate its audience. Because research demonstrates that teenagers learn best from children their own age, this show is uniquely designed to get its lessons through to teenagers. It is likely that in addition to learning the life saving lessons contained in each episode, the show will also work to minimize a viewer's belief in their immortality, a priceless lesson for all teenagers.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (Digital Channel 20.1)ON THE SPOT adopts a modified question and answer format familiar to broadcast network viewers, including the targeted age. The questions fall under curriculum core areas of knowledge in social studies, science, the arts, civics, and mathematics. The format allows for a wide range of topics and allows topics to be blended, which is a serious asset. The integration of core curriculum areas is a traditional goal in education and while ON THE SPOT doesn't support the deeper integration that would be done in a classroom, the energetic blend is a great example of taking curriculum out of their separate boxes and making them a uniform part of why knowledge can be important. The series also succeeds in modeling all ages, ethnicities, and both genders as successful, knowledgeable individuals. Although there are right and wrong answers, there are right answers from people that every audience member can identify with. This is of too-often misunderstood importance for the targeted 13-16 year-old age. Identifying with a successful representative of your own group is extremely important. But it is also very important to learn respect for those outside your own group---and this series does that very well. Beyond the correct or incorrect answers presented by the series is a follow-up for deeper understanding. A question on evolution will lead to an expanded look at Charles Darwin in the way that touches on the pivotal Galapagos Island visit, and the fact that Darwin was 25 when he made the voyage there. Similarly, a question on government leads to a deeper look at James Madison, the man, and the revelation that he was the primary author of the US Constitution-something worth knowing for the targeted group.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. (Digital Channel 20.1)The series Zoo Clues will keep 13-16 year-old viewers engaged for 30 minutes with the nearly infinite visual richness, animal characteristics, and wild range of animal behaviors. Beyond its target audience, both older and younger audiences should find this look across the amazing world of animals fascinating. Beyond basic engagement, Zoo Clues will leave viewers with a meaningful perspective about animals and meaningful comparisons to their own human characteristics. The variety of the animal kingdom is truly odd and bizarre enough to read like fiction, but the clever narration of Zoo Clues links disparate information together in a way that always makes clear that what viewers see is real, natural, and relates to their own life in the real world.
