Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Justin Time features and little boy, Justin, who wants very much to master his destiny, have great adventures, and solve problems. He begins with a problem that vexes him and daydreams his way into an adventure that takes him to different places around the world, but also provides him with an experience that helps him solve his problem when he returns home. While on the adventure he is accompanied by Olive, a knowledgeable imaginary playmate, and Squidgy the morphing flying sponge, who provides commentary and comedy along the way. Justin's lessons involve learning, for example, that it takes focus to achieve success, failure can teach what we need to do to succeed next time, or when one path to solve a problem doesn't work, you can find another way to get to your goal. Justin is all about self-directed learning from the young child's perspective and imagination.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. An animated series, Zou, is the story of a 5 year old zebra, Bizou, who lives in an intergenerational household composed of his parents, grandparents, and great grandmother. They reside in a lovely brightly colored suburban community of vertical, bi-pedaled zebras that walk, talk, dress and interact like humans. Bizou's best friend, Elzee lives next door and his other good friend, Zac, is often found in his father's store. Bizou also has a less rewarding relationship with his snooty, spoiled cousin Zinnia, a budding ballerina. We follow Zou through his hum-drum days, vicariously participating in his birthday, a trip to the store, taking his pet parakeet Poc, to the doctor, or helping Elzee find a lost toy. The show is very centered on family and personal relationships, and the abundant adults in the family are always around to guide but not direct Bizou through his dilemmas, projects, and predicaments. Broadcast on the main program stream.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas in has maintained a high level of educational value. It has addressed issues appropriate for both general public and the secondary classroom with a presentation that included large numbers of clips, wide ranging photography, fast-paced editing, and a non-condescending vocabulary level. The programs in the latest series of Animal Atlas happily maintain those strengths. It is differentiated from previous years by its sense of humor. Entertaining the viewer with wit and observation augments the educational integrity of its content. The level of humor, like the level of vocabulary, is most suited for middle school ages 13 to 16 with applications of topic that could extend into the higher grades. There are sound cues, visual elements and a general tone that supports the delivery of educational material in a way that is appropriate for entertainment television. The data delivered and the content communicated is absolutely educational in nature and value but one in a way that would hold the attention of the target viewer. While the program is consistently humorous, a middle school teacher could construct textbook test materials that would be applicable to Animal Atlas.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Family Style with Chef Jeff does not lay out its learning objectives and it doesn't have to--it has them throughout the program. Bellum has taken an engaging cooking program for adults and given it several layers that work for delivering real information for teens in the 13-16-year-old audience. The first layer is a series of informational graphics that appear frequently throughout the episode. When an alligator steals a catch alongside the Chef's small boat, we are reminded of the nature, weight, and length of the predatory reptile. When a local catch, a black drum fish, is brought in for the meal we are given its protein and fat percentages. Understandably, this information would be of equal interest to informed adult eaters. The second layer is the meaningful inclusion of a target audience peer in the food preparation. From the grocery store to the stove, the teen is involved. The teen delivers information but also asked questions-frequently questions viewers of any age would have-for example, what exactly is "Swiss" chard? This is a great device to clarify information the host takes for granted. The third education and information layer is the choice of the host, Chef Jeff. It is difficult to find an adult genuinely excited about his field who can speak to a 13-16 year-old audience without being condescending or pedantic. Chef Jeff plays the role of knowledgeable friend more than the role of teacher-less Mr. Wizard and more Dr. Who. The young person in the kitchen immediately becomes an honorary chef, and is so addressed by the host. He pours the olive oil, slices the beets, added the clam juice. While Chef Jeff does the heavy lifting in meal preparation, his instructions benefits both the co-host and the adults among us who could also a little help in preparing meals. Those valuable information graphics give the viewer exact information about temperature and time, spices, and the history that makes the meal more exciting. In the end, it is the teen that gives the ingredient summary.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Animal Atlas in previous years has maintained a high level of educational value. It has addressed issues appropriate for both general public and the secondary classroom with a presentation that included large numbers of clips, wide ranging photography, fast-paced editing, and a non-condescending vocabulary level. The programs in the latest series of Animal Atlas happily maintain those strengths. It is differentiated from previous years by its sense of humor. Entertaining the viewer with wit and observation augments the educational integrity of its content. The level of humor, like the level of vocabulary, is most suited for middle school ages 13 to 16 with applications of topic that could extend into the higher grades. There are sound cues, visual elements and a general tone that supports the delivery of educational material in a way that is appropriate for entertainment television. The data delivered and the content communicated is absolutely educational in nature and value but one in a way that would hold the attention of the target viewer. While the program is consistently humorous, a middle school teacher could construct textbook test materials that would be applicable to Animal Atlas.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Family Style with Chef Jeff does not lay out its learning objectives and it doesn't have to--it has them throughout the program. Bellum has taken an engaging cooking program for adults and given it several layers that work for delivering real information for teens in the 13-16-year-old audience. The first layer is a series of informational graphics that appear frequently throughout the episode. When an alligator steals a catch alongside the Chef's small boat, we are reminded of the nature, weight, and length of the predatory reptile. When a local catch, a black drum fish, is brought in for the meal we are given its protein and fat percentages. Understandably, this information would be of equal interest to informed adult eaters. The second layer is the meaningful inclusion of a target audience peer in the food preparation. From the grocery store to the stove, the teen is involved. The teen delivers information but also asked questions-frequently questions viewers of any age would have-for example, what exactly is "Swiss" chard? This is a great device to clarify information the host takes for granted. The third education and information layer is the choice of the host, Chef Jeff. It is difficult to find an adult genuinely excited about his field who can speak to a 13-16 year-old audience without being condescending or pedantic. Chef Jeff plays the role of knowledgeable friend more than the role of teacher-less Mr. Wizard and more Dr. Who. The young person in the kitchen immediately becomes an honorary chef, and is so addressed by the host. He pours the olive oil, slices the beets, added the clam juice.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. An animated series, Zou, is the story of a 5 year old zebra, Bizou, who lives in an intergenerational household composed of his parents, grandparents, and great grandmother. They reside in a lovely brightly colored suburban community of vertical, bi-pedaled zebras that walk, talk, dress and interact like humans. Bizou's best friend, Elzee lives next door and his other good friend, Zac, is often found in his father's store. Bizou also has a less rewarding relationship with his snooty, spoiled cousin Zinnia, a budding ballerina. We follow Zou through his hum-drum days, vicariously participating in his birthday, a trip to the store, taking his pet parakeet Poc, to the doctor, or helping Elzee find a lost toy. The show is very centered on family and personal relationships, and the abundant adults in the family are always around to guide but not direct Bizou through his dilemmas, projects, and predicaments. Broadcast on the main program stream.
