The study guide bridges all course components and lists the learning objectives of each of the course units. Each chapter corresponds directly to one of the 13 course units. The first two chapters provide essential background on the series themes, including general history and geography. The succeeding 10 chapters follow the progression of the television series, expanding on the material covered in the programs and providing cross-references for textbook assignments. The final unit sums up the main points presented in the television course and reviews students' knowledge. Each chapter of the study guide begins with a brief unit summary, followed by a list of critical thinking questions that address the learning objectives and an overview that integrates the program with the readings. In addition, each study guide chapter includes a glossary of key English, Spanish, and Portuguese words, with pronunciations, learning objectives, self-test questions and references to books, films, and other activities.

"Full of valuable information. I particularly liked the maps and glossary which gave the pronunciation of non-English words."--Emma G. Peters, Siena Heights College "Good glossary of terms, good maps,...good additional sources and essay questions."--Mike Pisani, Colorado Northwest Community College "Excellent background material to prepare students to view the video programs in a critical way. Excellent for coordinating the various course materials (text, anthology, programs)."--Douglas E. Heath, Northampton Community College "Very thorough, very useful compilation of materials. Dedicated students will find it indispensable. It's a combination of many things in one--most complete--a total road-map of what, where, when and why, making the programs and readings especially meaningful."--Charles F. Gruber, Marshall University
