The U.S. History Student Activities Manual (4th ed.) provides activities for reinforcement, enrichment, and review to help the student understand and apply lessons from the ST, including experience analyzing primary documents of U.S. History. Reinforcement activities generally can be completed by referring to the information in the student textbook. Enrichment activities might require the student to go beyond the textbook, consulting outside atlases, maps, books, or other materials. Review activities are good tools for helping the students prepare for the chapter tests. Increased emphasis is placed on the use of primary documents to help the student better understand first-hand accounts of how people lived and reacted to events during the time period(s) being studied.
