The most reliable and widely used personal health text, Connect Core Concepts in Health utilizes the theme of personal responsibility to teach and motivate students about health and wellness. The twelfth edition provides current, accurate, scientifically based information about a wealth of health and wellness topics and issues. Connect Personal Health is now seamlessly and deeply integrated with Blackboard and Blackboard related course management systems. Connect is an interactive online learning system that provides interactive multimedia-driven activities and assessments, such as interactive quizzes, video activities, health assessments, Internet research activities, online behavior change workbook, a fitness and nutrition log, and a multimedia ebook. Most activities and assessments are auto graded, entered into the grade book, and automatically uploaded to blackboard. This saves you time, holds your students accountable, and allows for seamless Course Management integration. Only one sign-on is needed for access to Blackboard and Connect, the grade book is integrated, and much much more. To address today’s students’ need for more portable, more relevant classroom tools, we are providing the book in a three-hole punched, loose-leaf version. Ask your rep for the correct ISBN to also provide each student full access to Connect Plus and the multimedia e-book at no extra charge with each copy of the loose-leaf text.
