Product-based rather than process focused adapted from Tomlinson (2001) by http://secondarycontent.pbworks.com/w/page/9977619/Tiering "...in differentiating the curriculum, teachers are not dispensers of knowledge but organisers of learning opportunities."
- Tomlinson (2001) “We have to go from what is essentially an industrial model of education, a manufacturing model, which is based on linearity and conformity and batching people. We have to move to a model that is based more on principles of agriculture. We have to recognize that human flourishing is not a mechanical process; it's an organic process. And you cannot predict the outcome of human development. All you can do, like a farmer, is create the conditions under which they will begin to flourish.”
