Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. Horseland takes "tweens" from very different backgrounds and a stable full of horses, also from different backgrounds, to show viewers how to get along with people of different backgrounds, accept responsibility and develop self-confidence, self-esteem and a strong, positive character. Horseland is more than a stable where kids learn to ride and take care of their animals. It's a microcosm where pre-teen girls and boys learn to resolve the same issues that most kids face today in their daily lives as they struggle to become positive, productive adults. Each week, Sarah, Alma, Molly and Bailey strive to become the best competitive riders they can possibly be. This entails learning not only the finer points of dressage, but also how to take care of their horses, the stable, and each other. They confront problems that test their honesty, integrity, self-confidence and friendship. Their problems, and how they deal with them, serve to provide concrete examples of positive social behavior that can serve as excellent models for the viewing audience. Horseland's engaging preteen characters along with their horses and assorted other "talking" stable animals (a cat, dog, and a pig) interact in clear and concrete actions that model appropriate prosocial behaviors and provide questions, comments, observations and explanations.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. "Doodlebops Rockin' Road Show" is intended to promote academic and social readiness in order to help young viewers toward ultimate competence and success in their future school and extracurricular environments. By means of fantasy, fun, music and adventure, the Doodlebops Band teaches kids about their world and gives them the vital understanding and behavioral tools to explore it. The show's major educational goals lie in the all-important psycho-social arena. Largely through targeted modeling, the show aids in the enhancement of viewers' personal character and pro-social behavior. Viewers come to see the value of honesty, integrity, the joy that can come from sharing, and so much more. The show's focus on feelings and emotions gives viewers an opportunity to make gains in their own emotional intelligence. They learn to effectively express themselves and "read" the expressions of others. The show also provides a template that youngsters can use to face situations and solve problems with the use of courage, inventiveness, and logical reasoning. The series secondarily addresses complementary core-knowledge goals. The show encourages an understanding and appreciation of music, leading to creative development and gains in multiple other subject areas; and provides practice on fundamental knowledge-based learning and skills, including numbers, the alphabet, colors, vocabulary, sequences, and directions. By incorporating the series' multi-faceted educational goal in the context of fun and laughter, "Doodlebops Rockin' Road Show" furthermore helps to engage kids in new learning, and gives them a chance to hone and develop their burgeoning sense of humor.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. It is our intention that all segments will- 1. Counteract gender stereotypes (both in roles and interactional style). 2. Use language appropriate to the target age. 3. Model standard grammar. 4. Refrain from zapping, crashing, and smashing animated characters. (pre-schoolers have trouble distinguishing between animation and reality). 5. Model safe and responsible behavior. 6. Keep humor at child's level. 7. Encourage parental watching with occasional humor aimed at the adult. There is good evidence that the educational value of any program is enhanced when an adult is there to talk with the child about it. 8. Encourage active rather than passive viewing - story elements that allow viewer to generate hypotheses and make predictions about outcome. 9. Use well-established attention getters for this age range: animation, children's voices, and music. 10. Captivate children with different learning styles: - For those who rely on visual stimulation there will be plenty to look at. Every Scarry scene is full of visual excitement. For those who are predominantly tuned to the auditory and verbal, there will be interesting characters and story lines, conversation, music, and song. Those attuned to movement will be captured by animation, action, the ever-present vehicles - bikes, motorcycles, trains, trucks, boats, tractors, road-graders, planes, etc.

Describe the educational and informational objective of the program and how it meets the definition of Core Programming. For young people today, new information is generally no more than a mouse-click away. Knowledge is readily there for the taking if kids simply know how to appropriately access it and effectively make use of it. In this context, many of the most useful and important things that youngsters can learn center on discovery, analysis and problem-solving -- how do kids get the right information and make proper use of it. What questions should be asked? How does one assess veracity? How does one weigh alternatives? How are decisions best arrived at? How does one decide when aims can be accomplished independently, and if help is needed, how does one go about enlisting support? Above all, how can goals be achieved ethically and with regard to the greater good. In an enticing new world filled with excitement, mystery, and danger, Magi-Nation addresses these vital learning goals. Tony, Edyn and Strag along with their human and decidedly non-human colleagues model their successful, and sometimes less than successful, attempts to analyze difficult situations, set appropriate goals, and creatively seek solutions to the dire dilemmas in which they find themselves. In the course of a series of intriguing codes, riddles and other puzzles that Tony, Edyn and Strag are presented with along the way, viewers are furthermore given the engaging opportunity to not only observe others go through the problem solving cycle, but to make use of their unique knowledge base and burgeoning problem solving skills to address conundrums on their own.
