In our extension work subject matter means comparatively little until we can hitch it to some human want, interest, attitude or emotion. To do this the teaching tools which we use must appeal to some characteristics of the individual. If his situation is such that he is annoyed and if what we present contributes still more to his annoyance, the subject matter has fallen flat but if, through our consideration of his annoyances, what we give of subject matter removes them and sets up a satisfaction in his mind and causes a change in his act for his betterment, then we have taught him something, for teaching must be measured in terms of acts and attitudes.
