Elmo. Kermit the Frog. Big Bird. Cookie Monster. Oscar the Grouch. These are some of the most lovable characters to ever come across a television screen. How did the first – and all-time best – educational television show manage to make learning fun? Through decades of social change, how did Sesame Street navigate multiple generations to better understand serious issues and learn educational skills from bullying, love, racism, and charity to knowing numbers, mastering letters, speaking, and telling time? Find out as Dr. Lucile Burbank joins us. Dr. Lucille is a children’s media educational consultant of 30 years who conducted research for a decade for Sesame Street.
Her book, The Inside Secrets of Sesame Street, 3rd Edition, reveals a behind-the-scenes look at what made Sesame Street the most-watched, best-beloved, award-winning program for children during a golden era of programming. Join us for a spirited discussion as we tell you how to get inside Sesame Street.
