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.
