Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. EDUCATIONAL MISSION To encourage children to be enthusiastic about writing and reading To help students build a foundation for writing, critical thinking, and problem solving To promote character development as the diverse cast demonstrates cooperation and mutual respect To provide educators with innovative and entertaining ways to teach their students Green Screen Adventures (GSA) is an educational children's television series intended to promote literacy. Utilizing humor as a powerful learning tool, GSA sparks enthusiasm for writing through age-appropriate sketch comedy, original songs, puppetry, and story theatre. By basing the stories on the writing of elementary school students, ages 7-13,children get the message that their words have power, and that their voices are being heard. Since its debut in 2007, GSA has produced 165 half-hour episodes that feature stories written by almost 1,000 elementary school students. GSA provides something that educators can't necessarily offer or replicate in a school setting, as it gives students a real world connection to their writing. Young students have the opportunity to understand the impact of writing on a broader audience by submitting their own writing to the show for consideration and adaptation. Green Screen's company of performers and writers reinforces critical writing skills and emphasizes positive social messages. In addition to academic skills, GSA focuses on the five Cs: Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence, Citizenship, Compassion. ACADEMICS - WRITING SKILLS The writers for GSA walk the delicate line of adaptation, staying true to each child's ideas and each student's words, while at the same time creating dynamic and educational programming. They take the best elements of a child's work - including descriptive language, plot, or character and expand upon them aiming to produce the greatest impact. GSA has developed an aesthetic that grabs viewers' attention, stimulates creativity, and emphasizes demonstrated writing skills. Educational content reflects current learning standards and is reviewed in collaboration with educators. GSA designs adaptations of students' work to emphasize and reinforce writing skills. BRAIN GAMES incorporate research papers and factual reports with an emphasis on organization and accuracy. STORY THEATRE brings fiction to life and examines ideas and themes as well as the elements of character, setting, and plot. There is a natural expression of voice that enhances the writer's use of point-of-view whether they chose the use of first-person or third-person narrative. Descriptive language is acted upon with an emphasis on a rich and deepened vocabulary. It also integrates components like prediction,parts of speech, dialogue, and punctuation. PUPILS' COURT analyzes the varying sides of arguments that are the foundation for powerful persuasive writing. POET TREE features haiku and other forms of poetry. FOOD FOLKS incorporates handmade puppets to provide yet another creative approach to storytelling. BEYOND WORDS highlights illustrations and visual art techniques. A primary goal is to generate more writing in schools and among students. One example of its success is from the Chicago Public Schools, the original partner for Green Screen Adventures, which is produced in and originates from Chicago. Over the past two years in one area of Chicago Public Schools, the participation rate in GSA has risen to 90%, with 27 of its schools submitting work to the program. One third of that area's schools have had more than a dozen of their students' stories featured on GSA.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Noodle and Doodle is an instructional series that features creating art projects and cooking projects around a specific theme. The show is hosted by Sean, who drives around in a double-decker bus fully equipped with art supplies and a kitchen, all ready for any assignment.

Sean is accompanied by Doggity, an every-faithful Beagle dog, who transforms into an animated character during interstitial trips to a parallel universe and kitchen full of prank playing animated characters.

The Pajanimals are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in house with their off-screen mother and father. We meet them in the bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they show us their nighttime routine of brushing their teeth and having quiet conversation before falling off to sleep. The quiet time, always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem, such as overcoming shyness, making a new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure, and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow.

It takes place in an imaginary setting, Lazy Town, and most episodes relate children's eating and fitness habits to problem solving in their "real world."

The underground spy and influencer who defines the ethos of Lazy Town is Robbie Rotten, and he is determined to ruin the health and fitness practices of Stephanie and her friends. When the kids get into difficulties with Robbie Rotten, it is Sportacus, gymnast/athlete who comes to the rescue from his home in a spaceship that hovers over earth, prepared to answer to any call for help. The ever-present theme of Lazy Town is to eat "sports candy" which consists of fruits and vegetables, get sufficient sleep, and go outside and engage in a wide range of physical activities, from playing games, holding athletic competitions, to building forts and play structures.

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.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. EDUCATIONAL MISSION To encourage children to be enthusiastic about writing and reading To help students build a foundation for writing, critical thinking, and problem solving To promote character development as the diverse cast demonstrates cooperation and mutual respect To provide educators with innovative and entertaining ways to teach their students Green Screen Adventures (GSA) is an educational children's television series intended to promote literacy. Utilizing humor as a powerful learning tool, GSA sparks enthusiasm for writing through age-appropriate sketch comedy, original songs, puppetry, and story theatre. By basing the stories on the writing of elementary school students, ages 7-13,children get the message that their words have power, and that their voices are being heard. Since its debut in 2007, GSA has produced 165 half-hour episodes that feature stories written by almost 1,000 elementary school students. GSA provides something that educators can't necessarily offer or replicate in a school setting, as it gives students a real world connection to their writing. Young students have the opportunity to understand the impact of writing on a broader audience by submitting their own writing to the show for consideration and adaptation. Green Screen's company of performers and writers reinforces critical writing skills and emphasizes positive social messages. In addition to academic skills, GSA focuses on the five Cs: Creativity, Curiosity, Confidence, Citizenship, Compassion. ACADEMICS - WRITING SKILLS The writers for GSA walk the delicate line of adaptation, staying true to each child's ideas and each student's words, while at the same time creating dynamic and educational programming. They take the best elements of a child's work - including descriptive language, plot, or character and expand upon them aiming to produce the greatest impact. GSA has developed an aesthetic that grabs viewers' attention, stimulates creativity, and emphasizes demonstrated writing skills. Educational content reflects current learning standards and is reviewed in collaboration with educators. GSA designs adaptations of students' work to emphasize and reinforce writing skills. BRAIN GAMES incorporate research papers and factual reports with an emphasis on organization and accuracy. STORY THEATRE brings fiction to life and examines ideas and themes as well as the elements of character, setting, and plot. There is a natural expression of voice that enhances the writer's use of point-of-view whether they chose the use of first-person or third-person narrative. Descriptive language is acted upon with an emphasis on a rich and deepened vocabulary. It also integrates components like prediction,parts of speech, dialogue, and punctuation. PUPILS' COURT analyzes the varying sides of arguments that are the foundation for powerful persuasive writing. POET TREE features haiku and other forms of poetry. FOOD FOLKS incorporates handmade puppets to provide yet another creative approach to storytelling. BEYOND WORDS highlights illustrations and visual art techniques. A primary goal is to generate more writing in schools and among students. One example of its success is from the Chicago Public Schools, the original partner for Green Screen Adventures, which is produced in and originates from Chicago. Over the past two years in one area of Chicago Public Schools, the participation rate in GSA has risen to 90%, with 27 of its schools submitting work to the program. One third of that area's schools have had more than a dozen of their students' stories featured on GSA. One can anticipate a similar growth pattern as the broadcast of the program expands across the country. SOCIO-EMOTIONAL GROWTH Its company of writers and performers brings a variety of life experiences to the program. Through their words and actions they serve as role models for the young viewers, demonstratin

The Pajanimals are a group of four preschool aged puppets who live together in house with their off-screen mother and father. We meet them in the bedroom, a dormitory of sorts, where they show us their nighttime routine of brushing their teeth and having quiet conversation before falling off to sleep. The quiet time, always turns into a discussion that results in a dream-like adventure to solve a problem, such as overcoming shyness, making a new friend, or dealing with a bully. The adventure takes place in several nighttime dream locales where special friends help them work through the socio-emotional problem of the day. Specific approaches to managing the problem are demonstrated and practiced during the adventure, and the children return home confident, getting ample rest for today and facing their issues tomorrow.
