"CHAT ROOM" is a half-hour weekly educational series designed to inform, educate, and entertain children 16 & under (specific target audience is 13-16) through re-enacting teen oriented dilemmas and discussing them in an open and honest format. 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.

We provide a written synopsis of each episode for your FCC Children's Television Report. These write-ups are e-mailed to your station on a quarterly basis.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. 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.
