Questions and Answers: A Guide to Fitness and Wellness
Published: January 17, 2020
Questions and Answers’ results-centered pedagogy ensures that the content of each chapter works toward the larger goal of making students active participants in their own life-learning. Critical thinking questions and calls to action prompt students to evaluate the content and connect it to their own experiences. Online video case studies follow real college students attempting to change their behavior and prompt readers to apply lessons from these experiences to their own behavior-change goals. A series of lab activities provide tracking tools and self- assessment forms that can be completed in print or online.
The Fifth Edition features new research-based coverage of the use of digital technology, including new Tech Tips in every chapter that help students take advantage of apps and tech-based devices that will help them reach their fitness and wellness goals. Additionally, every chapter has been updated to reflect current scientific thinking, data, and statistics from such authoritative sources as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
