Questions and Answers: A Guide to Fitness and Wellness, Fourth Edition, is built on questions-real questions about real health and wellness issues collected from real students at both two- and four-year schools across the United States. In responding to these student inquiries, authors Gary Liguori and Sandra Carroll-Cobb combine the latest science-based knowledge with practical guidance on concrete actions students can take now to improve their fitness and wellness.
Questions and Answers takes an active-learning approach that includes the following features: -Online video case studies follow real college students as they attempt to change their behavior. The cases prompt readers to apply lessons from these experiences to their own behavior-change goals. A series of lab activities provides tracking tools and self-assessment forms that can be completed in print or online.-A results-centered pedagogy ensures that the content of each chapter works toward the larger goal of making students active participants in lifelong learning. Critical-thinking questions and calls to action prompt students to evaluate the content and connect it to their own experiences.-New research-based coverage of the use of digital technology, including new Tech Tips in every chapter, helps students take advantage of apps and tech-based devices to reach their fitness and wellness goals.-Updated chapters 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.
