Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

Questions and Answers is built on questions—real questions about real health and wellness issues collected from real students at both 2- and 4-year schools across the US. In addressing these student queries, the authors combine the latest science-based knowledge with practical guidance on actions students can take now to improve their fitness and wellness.


Questions and Answers’ active learning approach includes a focus on behavior change and the latest research. Its 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 goals. Lab activities provide tracking tools and self- assessment guidance.
