[2][3] Cooney proposed using television's "most engaging traits",[4] including high production values, sophisticated writing, and quality film and animation, to reach the largest audience possible.[4] .Cooney suggested creating a program that would spread prolearning values to both viewers and nonviewers (including their parents) that would affect them for many years after they stopped watching it.^ If mom and dad are cable watchers then it is not accurate to say chances are 50/50 they watch FOX. Fox viewership is tiny – and there are many cable channels to choose from.

Cooney began to assemble a team of producers: Jon Stone, Dave Connell and Sam Gibbon.[3] That summer, five three-day curriculum planning seminars, led by Harvard University professor Gerald S. Lesser, were conducted in Boston.[3][7] .The seminars marked the beginning of Jim Henson's involvement in Sesame Street,[3] and provided the show's producers and writers with a "crash course in child development, psychology, and preschool education".[8] The new show, called the "Preschool Educational Television Show" in promotional materials, was built around an inner-city street, a choice that was "unprecedented".[9] The producers and writers could not come up with a name they liked "up until the last moment".[10] They finally settled upon the name they least disliked: Sesame Street, although they initially feared that it would be too difficult for young children to pronounce.^ "My name is Fred, they call me Fred.

As writer Michael Davis states, "...It became the rare children's show stamped with parental approval".[13] The show reached only 67.6% of the nation, but earned a 3.3 Nielsen rating, or 1.9 million households.

Educational goals

.As author Malcolm Gladwell has stated, "Sesame Street was built around a single, breakthrough insight: that if you can hold the attention of children, you can educate them".[14] Sesame Street was the first children's show that structured each episode and made "small but critical adjustments" to each segment to capture children's attention long enough to teach them something.^ I hope Sesame Street stays around for a long time!

.Since the show's inception, other instructional goals have been basic life skills, such as how to cross the street safely, proper hygiene, healthy eating habits, and social skills; in addition, real-world situations are taught, such as death, divorce, pregnancy and birth, adoption, and even all of the human emotions such as happiness, love, anger, fear, sadness, and hatred.^ Your insight would be very helpful in terms of how the show has changed and if it still gives great importance to the whole family beyond blood ties (like in "Follow that Bird" Maria gives a speech in the end about how it doesnt matter if youre a grouch or a bird etc they all support each other on the street and they are ultimately his "real" family).

Format

Original format

.From the first episode, Sesame Street's producers have used "different elements" of commercial television: "a strong visual style, fast-moving action, humor, and music".

Cooney was the first to suggest that they use "teaching commercials", or several twelve -to ninety-second shorts, and the repetition of several key concepts throughout an episode.[17]
.The producers and writers decided to build the new show around a brownstone or an inner-city street, a choice that was "unprecedented".[9] They wanted to attract inner-city viewers, so they reproduced these viewers' neighborhoods as its setting—a realistic city street, complete with peeling paint, alleys, front stoops, and metal trash cans along the sidewalk".[18] The cast needed to reflect the diversity of this kind of neighborhood, first with a mix of White and African-American actors, and then with Hispanics and Asians later on.^ These retrogrades have given us a 50% dropout rate in Los Angeles, now they use Sesame Street as a propaganda tool.

Sesame Street is a fully integrated television show: The producers, early in the show's history, decided to eschew the advice of experts and allow Muppets and humans to interact.
.In addition, the researchers and producers made use of repetition and reinforcement throughout the show's segments.^ They have been introducing lots of different vocabulary words and having the words used throughout the show in a variety of ways.

The format remained the same from episode to episode, but the content was varied so that new concepts could be introduced.[20] .The show was designed to encourage "coviewing" with the use of humor, which was written into the show so that children and their parents could appreciate it together.^ But I believe that the kid’s imaginations, social skills, learning skills, and appreciation for humor were all influenced by this great show.

[21] Cultural references were used, which included bringing celebrities to appear on it, that only adults would understand.[22] Music was also used, since as Cooney observed, children have an "affinity for commercial jingles".[23]

Although the story, which occurred during what the producers called "the street scenes", usually lasted about ten-to-twelve minutes in length, it would take forty-five minutes to tell it.[24][25][note .2] It was decided, by recommendation of child psychologists, that the Street scenes, which CTW researcher Edward Palmer called "the glue" that "pulled the show together",[26] would never feature the human actors and Muppets together because they were concerned it would confuse and mislead young children.^ To show Sesame Street 's broad reach, CTW touts a Westat survey suggesting at 77 percent of all American preschoolers, including 87 percent of black children and 79 percent of Hispanic, watch the show once a week or more.

They were never intended for broadcast. .Instead, they were presented to preschoolers in 60 homes throughout Philadelphia in July 1969. The results were "generally very positive",[27] but they found that although children attended to the shows during the Muppet segments, their interest was lost during the "Street" segments.^ Sesame Street, compared to other children’s shows is extremely valuable in that it follows the main rules of language acquisition (I teach language at university level), and is brilliant in its teaching techniques.

CTW researcher Gerald Lesser called their decision to defy the recommendations of their advisers "a turning point in the history of Sesame Street".[26] The producers went back and reshot the Street segments; Henson and his team created Muppets that could interact with the human actors,[26][29] specifically "two of Sesame Street's most enduring Muppets: Oscar the Grouch and Big Bird".[30] These test episodes were directly responsible for what writer Malcolm Gladwell calls "the essence of Sesame Street--the artful blend of fluffy monsters and earnest adults".[26]

By the 1990s, its dominance was challenged by other programs, and its ratings declined. .New research, the growth of the children's home video industry, and the increase of thirty-minute children's shows on cable demonstrated that the traditional magazine-format was not necessarily the most effective way to hold their attention.^ There is a reason that children's shows have a liberal bent, that is because children don't "hate" naturally, it takes a while for children to be taught how to hate others and to fear new things.

Research in production

.As Cooney has stated, "Without research, there would be no Sesame Street".[4] In 1967, when Cooney and her team began to plan the show's development, combining research with television production was "positively heretical".[4] Sesame Street was the first children's television program that included a curriculum "detailed or stated in terms of measurable outcomes".[37] There was little precedent for incorporating research into television production.^ I loved the show sesame street as a kid.

Writing

The show's research team developed an annotated document, or "Writer's Notebook", which provided extended and developed definitions of the researchers' curriculum goals. The notebook assisted the writers and producers in translating their educational goals into televised material.[52] .Suggestions in the notebook were free of references to specific characters and contexts on the show so that they could be implemented as openly and flexibly as possible.^ I think many of the newer shows have some educational value, but they miss the character development that their early predecessors brought to the screen.

[16] The research team, in a series of meetings with the writers, also developed "a curriculum sheet" that described their goals and priorities for each season, which were divided into four categories: symbolic representation, cognitive processes, the physical environment, and the social environment.[53][note 4] After receiving the curriculum focus and goals for the season, the writers met to discuss ideas and story arcs for the characters, and when a script was completed, the show's research team analyzed it to ensure that the goals were met. Then each production department met to determine what each episode needed in terms of costumes, lights, and sets. .The writers were present during the show's taping, which for the first twenty-four years of the show took place in Manhattan, and after 1992, at the Kaufman Astoria Studios in Queens, New York, to make last-minute revisions when necessary.^ My daughter LOVES Sesame Street and I think they have done a good job over the last couple of years making changes that are relevant and current with educational trends.

Music

.Many of the songs written for Sesame Street have become "timeless classics"[59] In order to attract the best composers and lyricists, CTW allowed songwriters like Joe Raposo, the show's music director, and Jeff Moss, a "gifted poet, composer, and lyricist",[60] to retain the rights to the songs that they wrote.^ I loved the show sesame street as a kid.

Joe Raposo, Sesame Street's first musical director.
.Raposo wrote Sesame Street's theme song, which Davis has called "jaunty" and "deceptively simple".[64] Stone, although he (along with writer Bruce Hart) is listed as the song's lyricist, considered the song "a musical masterpiece and a lyrical embarrassment".[61] Raposo enlisted jazz harmonica player Jean "Toots" Thielemans, as well as a mixed choir of children, to record the opening and closing themes.^ The name of the Sesame Street song you are looking for is called "Mahna Mahna."

Dann's appointment resulted in television critic Marvin Kitman, referring to the May 1970 Mississippi state commission decision to ban the show,[83] stating, "After he [Dann] sells [Sesame Street] in Russia and Czechoslovakia, he might try Mississippi, where it is considered too controversial for educational TV".[115] By summer 1970, Dann had made the first international agreements for what CTW came to call "co-productions".
The earliest international versions were what CTW vice-president Charlotte Cole called "fairly simple",[114] consisting of dubbed versions of the show with local language voice-overs and instructional cutaways. Dubbed versions of the show continued to be produced if the country's needs and resources warranted it.[116] .Eventually a flexible model, which came to be called "the CTW model",[114] was developed for independently produced preschool television shows, based upon Sesame Street, created in other countries.^ I loved the show sesame street as a kid.

Simple English

Sesame Street is a children's television series with human actors and puppets that are called Muppets. The show deals with issues such as music, song, alphabet, numbers, and teaching children basics in learning. Part of the profits, go to an international project for children's schools.

It has been on TV since 1969. Jim Henson made the Muppets, and a lot of writers and puppeteers worked together to make the show. The Muppets were used afterwards in a different show called The Muppet Show. Sesame Street has been on TV in 120 countries all over the world. More than 4000 episodes have been made over 40 seasons.

The Muppets

  • Big Bird is a very tall yellow bird. His best friend is Mr. Snuffleupagus who looks like a mammoth.
  • Oscar the Grouch lives in a garbage can with his pet worm Slimey and his pet elephant Fluffy. He is always in a bad mood and he loves everything that other people hate: mud, dirt, etc.
  • Bert and Ernie are two roommates. Ernie is more active and always ready to play a game or make a mess. Bert is an often boring grouch who likes to read; he likes things to be clean, neat and loves pigeons.
  • Cookie Monster eats large amounts of cookies.
  • Elmo is a red furred monster and lives with his goldfish named Dorothy.

There are three new muppets for Sesame Street. One is a girl fairy named Abby Cadabby. Another is Murray, and his lamb named Ovajita. Not only Muppets play in the show but also human actors who live with the Muppets.
