Dr. Arthur Robinson


Former columnist for Practical Homeschooling Magazine.

Dr. Arthur Robinson is President and Research Professor of the Oregon Institute of Science and Medicine. His wife Lauralee, who was also a scientist, homeschooled their children until her death in November 1988. Since then, Dr. Robinson and his six children have continued their homeschooling by developing a program entirely based upon self-teaching. Their "Robinson Curriculum" includes all 6,400 vocabulary words from past SAT and GRE exams, keyed to the hundreds of classic books in their CD-ROM-based curriculum. It also includes numerous vocabulary exercises based on those words.
