Stories of real people are woven through each chapter from beginning to end, but they don’t just exist on the page. Every chapter has a set of four online video interviews with the story subjects, making the relevance of the stories to course content even more memorable. In Their Own Words and You Asked, They Answered QR codes in the book link students directly to the videos. Video Profile Activities, assessable and assignable video activities in LaunchPad, further reinforce the connection between the stories and important psychological concepts.
