Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. DEGRASSI: THE NEXT GENERATION is a television series for middle and high school children and adolescents. The series, rated TV-PG addresses important age relevent topics in a direct and honest fashion. While adolescents will certainly have some awareness of issues presented, the series provides vivid representations of dilemmas along with solid information about how they can be handled. Many of these problems emerge from within the peer culture as well as occasionally from expectations and conflicts that adults may be experiencing. Resolutions emerge through peer discussions and direct experiences. Viewing these situations in the often entertaining and engrossing format of the series may also yield opportunities for teenagers to express any concerns they may have about their own choices and consequences portrayed in each episode. The Degrassi series exemplifies topics such as bullying, cliques, dating, conflicts between friends, relationships with teachers and parents, substances abuse and school pressures both intellectual and social. Degreassi can act as a catalyst for young people who may be experiencing some of the problems presented on the show. Guides on the episodes are provided on the internet for parents and teachers to talk to young people about the topics covered. The recurruing cast of characters who appear represent a diversity of personalities, ethnic backgrounds, body types and class distinctions affording viewers opportunities for identification or modeling behaviors.

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. 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 teen's 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. The Winx Club utilizes fairies, castles, magical caverns and timeless villages as a backdrop for coming-of-age instruction, group problem-solving and important social and emotional lessons. The Winx Club follows an ordinary earth girl named Bloom and her four best friends, Tecna, Musa, Flora and Stella-together known as the Winx club- through their life at the Alfea Boarding School as they together face the challenges of growing up, navigating the pressures of school and saving the universe. As hard working diligent teenagers who care about the world, the Winx fairies are empowering role models to children. Winx Fairies are a diverse group of adolescents whose socialization and learning comes through active discovery. They participate in familiar storytelling sequences, including good versus evil and the known verses the unknown. They also address many of the current day problems that youngsters face. In each episode, as a conflict arises, the fairies pool their unique capabilities to find a solution comprised of each of their special talents. Each fairy's contribution is valued and the whole becomes greater than the sum of its parts. In this boarding school and dorm/group like environment, optimal social-emotional learning is modeled by example.

Using her many positive qualities, Strawberry helps her friends, who share her values but not necessarily her ability to take a broader view, to see beyond their own self-interest. The themes of the stories are designed to have particular relevance for young viewers, focusing on such issues as friendship, fear, self-confidence, sportsmanship, trust and shyness. The pro-social messages flow naturally from the narrative, as the characters experience concrete (positive and negative) consequences of their actions.

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. 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 teen's 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.
