Rufus Stimson

It was my pleasure to participate in a ZOOM workshop for agricultural education teachers today for Mt. Olive University. I spoke about the impact that Rufus Stimson, one of the pioneer leaders in agricultural education, made on agricultural education. He was responsible for the project method of teaching, introduced task analysis for curriculum development, promoted adult education in agriculture, advocated for advisory committees, and fought to get girls in the FFA in the 1930s. He also wrote several seminal books in agricultural education.
