Culture Click is a weekly half-hour series that explores the genesis of - and reasons behind- cultural events that permeate our everyday lives. Developed and produced for viewers aged 13-16, host Nzinga Blake opens each episode from her virtual reality set with a list of what's trending on search engines that week. These topics will serve as a jumping-off point for a deep dive into the culture viewers 13-16 will embrace. Each week Nzinga will analyze and answer the questions that shape our society - using the power and speed of the internet and user-generated questions and content. Experts in pop culture will join her to add insight and historical perspective. And most importantly, viewers will come away with a week's work of "aha" moments to share with their friends and family. Six degrees of separation takes on a whole new meaning, and there's no limit to what viewers will learn when they experience Culture Click.

More than any other group, teens are on the frontlines of dealing with complex subjects as they stand at the crossroads between childhood and adulthood. "CHAT ROOM" may not have all the answers but it offers a place where young people can watch and discuss the problems they face. "CHAT ROOM" provides a compelling look at real-life situations that happen to today's teens as dramatized by teen actors. Our adult host and teen panel then discuss the issues presented in a direct and forthright manner. This program is not intended to be preachy or pedantic. The goal is to present issues that are real and raw and discuss the pros and cons of each situation in a free-flowing environment.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Edgemont is a television program designed for middle and high school students aged 13-16 years-old and is rated TV-PG. Originally produced by Canada's public broadcaster, CBC, the series depicts the everyday lives of teenagers in the fictitious suburban town of Edgemont. Each 30-minute episode generally focuses on the children's activities at AC McKinley Secondary School. Edgemont is designed to entertain its core teen audience and also to inform and educate its viewers about issues that arise in school and at home. The storylines focus on social and emotional challenges faced by all secondary school students, from forming and maintaining family, friendship and romantic relationships, to ethical and moral choices. The objective of the series is to demonstrate models of behavior for teen viewers, allowing them to consider choices that they themselves may face, to witness the potential outcomes of these choices and gain positive tools that they can use to resolve issues and conflicts in a constructive way. Most scenes occur in and around the McKinley School and the teens' homes and follow the interactions of the teens. School work is taken seriously, depicted through characters studying in the library, receiving or discussing grades or doing homework at home. The cast portrays teenagers in a realistic manner with diversity along physical, social and ethnic lines, providing opportunities for most viewers to identify directly with specific characters. Each episode advances a few specific storylines based on particular social or emotional issues and takes them to a new conclusion. Characters act out behaviors that bring these issues to the forefront, and they solve problems, generally without intervention by adults but through communication with peers and direct action, which leads to a better understanding of each situation and each other. At the same time, actions do lead to consequences, and the outcomes provide a "life lesson" that is plainly evident but conveyed to the viewer in a natural way. It is anticipated that, on viewing Edgemont, teen viewers will compare their own behaviors to those of the characters, and the series may provide a vehicle for them to openly express to peers, and potentially teachers and parents, their own ideas and concerns relating to the issues portrayed. Parental viewing may also provide parents an additional perspective on the developmental process and social and emotional pressures in their children's lives. The series also touches on significant societal issues, which is intended to inform teens on these topics, stimulate conversations among teen viewers and potentially complement classroom discussions. These issues range from considerations of diversity, racism and sexual identity, to divorce, teen pregnancy, bullying and alcohol and substance abuse. The series website provides additional materials, including Study Guides, to assist educators and parents in stimulating discussion of Edgemont with teens.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Edgemont is a television program designed for middle and high school students aged 13-16 years-old and is rated TV-PG. Originally produced by Canada's public broadcaster, CBC, the series depicts the everyday lives of teenagers in the fictitious suburban town of Edgemont. Each 30-minute episode generally focuses on the children's activities at AC McKinley Secondary School. Edgemont is designed to entertain its core teen audience and also to inform and educate its viewers about issues that arise in school and at home. The storylines focus on social and emotional challenges faced by all secondary school students, from forming and maintaining family, friendship and romantic relationships, to ethical and moral choices. The objective of the series is to demonstrate models of behavior for teen viewers, allowing them to consider choices that they themselves may face, to witness the potential outcomes of these choices and gain positive tools that they can use to resolve issues and conflicts in a constructive way. Most scenes occur in and around the McKinley School and the teens' homes and follow the interactions of the teens. School work is taken seriously, depicted through characters studying in the library, receiving or discussing grades or doing homework at home. The cast portrays teenagers in a realistic manner with diversity along physical, social and ethnic lines, providing opportunities for most viewers to identify directly with specific characters. Each episode advances a few specific storylines based on particular social or emotional issues and takes them to a new conclusion. Characters act out behaviors that bring these issues to the forefront, and they solve problems, generally without intervention by adults but through communication with peers and direct action, which leads to a better understanding of each situation and each other. At the same time, actions do lead to consequences, and the outcomes provide a "life lesson" that is plainly evident but conveyed to the viewer in a natural way. It is anticipated that, on viewing Edgemont, teen viewers will compare their own behaviors to those of the characters, and the series may provide a vehicle for them to openly express to peers, and potentially teachers and parents, their own ideas and concerns relating to the issues portrayed. Parental viewing may also provide parents an additional perspective on the developmental process and social and emotional pressures in their children's lives. The series also touches on significant societal issues, which is intended to inform teens on these topics, stimulate conversations among teen viewers and potentially complement classroom discussions. These issues range from considerations of diversity, racism and sexual identity, to divorce, teen pregnancy, bullying and alcohol and substance abuse. The series website provides additional materials, including Study Guides, to assist educators and parents in stimulating discussion of Edgemont with teens.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Edgemont is a television program designed for middle and high school students aged 13-16 years-old and is rated TV-PG. Originally produced by Canada's public broadcaster, CBC, the series depicts the everyday lives of teenagers in the fictitious suburban town of Edgemont. Each 30-minute episode generally focuses on the children's activities at AC McKinley Secondary School. Edgemont is designed to entertain its core teen audience and also to inform and educate its viewers about issues that arise in school and at home. The storylines focus on social and emotional challenges faced by all secondary school students, from forming and maintaining family, friendship and romantic relationships, to ethical and moral choices. The objective of the series is to demonstrate models of behavior for teen viewers, allowing them to consider choices that they themselves may face, to witness the potential outcomes of these choices and gain positive tools that they can use to resolve issues and conflicts in a constructive way. Most scenes occur in and around the McKinley School and the teens' homes and follow the interactions of the teens. School work is taken seriously, depicted through characters studying in the library, receiving or discussing grades or doing homework at home. The cast portrays teenagers in a realistic manner with diversity along physical, social and ethnic lines, providing opportunities for most viewers to identify directly with specific characters. Each episode advances a few specific storylines based on particular social or emotional issues and takes them to a new conclusion. Characters act out behaviors that bring these issues to the forefront, and they solve problems, generally without intervention by adults but through communication with peers and direct action, which leads to a better understanding of each situation and each other. At the same time, actions do lead to consequences, and the outcomes provide a "life lesson" that is plainly evident but conveyed to the viewer in a natural way. It is anticipated that, on viewing Edgemont, teen viewers will compare their own behaviors to those of the characters, and the series may provide a vehicle for them to openly express to peers, and potentially teachers and parents, their own ideas and concerns relating to the issues portrayed. Parental viewing may also provide parents an additional perspective on the developmental process and social and emotional pressures in their children's lives. The series also touches on significant societal issues, which is intended to inform teens on these topics, stimulate conversations among teen viewers and potentially complement classroom discussions. These issues range from considerations of diversity, racism and sexual identity, to divorce, teen pregnancy, bullying and alcohol and substance abuse. The series website provides additional materials, including Study Guides, to assist educators and parents in stimulating discussion of Edgemont with teens.
