Each of the lessons in CoRT 1 is designed to encourage students to broaden their thinking.

 

In the thinking of both children and adults, the dominant fault is often the tendency to take too narrow a view. An example of this would be to take up an instant judgment position on an issue without examining all the factors involved, before you reach, or make a decision.

The lessons in CoRT 1 define attention areas into which thinking can be directed:

Looking for plus and minus points

Considering all factors

Consequences

Aims and objectives

Assessing priorities

Taking other people's views into account.

By making the deliberate effort during the lessons to direct their thinking towards these areas, students can develop the habit of broadening their thinking.

Research has shown that the use of these lessons can have a considerable effect in increasing the number of aspects of a situation that are considered.
