The first five lessons in CoRT 2 deal with five common thinking operations.

 

We begin by focusing on the subjects of deliberate attention, so that students can use them in an organised manner: asking specific questions and looking for specific answers.

 

The next five lessons deal with the overall organisation of thinking so that it can be used in a deliberate and productive manner.

 

The intention is to treat thinking as an organised operation rather than a discursive ramble in which one thing leads to another.

Some of the lessons in the second half refer to processes learned in CoRT 1 (BREADTH) but the lessons can still be used even if CoRT 1 has not been taught, by omitting references to it.
