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 group. 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 On the Spot's energetic blend is a great example of taking curriculum areas out of their separate boxes and making them a uniform illustration of why knowledge can be important. The series also succeeds in modeling individuals of 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 group. Identifying with a successful representative of one's 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.

The 101 year old educational publisher will contribute editorial support and script editing to make stories more age appropriate. Weekly Reader Polls will be featured on the program as well as content from their magazines which reach 11 million children.

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 group. 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 On the Spot's energetic blend is a great example of taking curriculum areas out of their separate boxes and making them a uniform illustration of why knowledge can be important. The series also succeeds in modeling individuals of 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 group. Identifying with a successful representative of one's 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.
