The organization of the Student Activities Manual(SAM) parallels that of the student text. There are activities corresponding to each Tema in the textbook; writing exercises and listening activities that recycle and reinforce vocabulary, grammar topics, cultural information, and communicative functions presented in the student text. A new Diario feature guides students in writing paragraphs on the topic of each Tema, which are later revised, combined, and refined in the final composition in the iTrato hecho! section of the SAM. The iTrato hecho! cultural magazine from the textbook has a corresponding section in the SAM, En la red Web activities that encourages students to investigate related topics and questions about Hispanic culture and Hispanics living in the United States on the Internet, and a guided composition in which students revise paragraphs written in the Diario sections of Temas and combine them into a longer composition.
