When reading the following page keep in mind that every time the word “home school” is mentioned we’re actually talking about our customized home school curriculum experience used inside a classroom and led by a Robinson administrator.
Four Keys to Learning
The four keys to learning, according to the Robinson Curriculum website are:
- Course of Study
- High Quality Books
The self-teaching home school that the Robinson children developed has been so effective that each of the children is far surpassing Dr. Robinson’s own accomplishments at equivalent ages – even though he was, himself, so well prepared that he was accepted by MIT, Harvard, Rice, and CalTech. After graduation from CalTech and then the University of California at San Diego, he was immediately given a faculty position at UCSD and was considered one of the best prepared young scientists of his generation.
Moreover, this teaching program requires almost no teacher interaction. It is not dependent upon the teachers individual education, and it routinely allows the student to acquire skills and knowledge that are beyond those of their parents.
Academic knowledge is in books. Each child must learn to extract and use that knowledge to the greatest extent that his or her abilities permit. This curriculum enables the student to learn these skills with very little teacher help, and it provides the student with 120,000 pages of knowledge from the greatest science, history, literature, economics, reference, and general education books in the English language. These are reinforced by frequent and appropriate examinations.
Home schooling not only provides a superior childhood and family environment, it also has potential to transform American society by building new generations of more capable young adults. Home schooling is, however, often held back by the academic education of the parents or by their lack of time to become home school teachers.
The Robinson Curriculum solves both of these problems. Children using this curriculum are able to advance at their own rate through learning of skills and facts whether or not their parents have this knowledge – and to do so on their own without an active teacher. The Robinson Home School Curriculum Version 2.2 is an extraordinary system of home-education that exceeds, in quality and effectiveness, any other home-school curriculum – and at a very low price.
Complete 12-Year Education
Most importantly, this curriculum teaches children to think.
If you could only have one home school resource, this curriculum would be the one. Developed by an outstanding scientist and his six home schooled children with the help of their professional and personal co-workers, the curriculum offers self-taught preparation of children for the modern world. This includes education in math, physical science, history, literature, economics, and general studies.
Most importantly, this curriculum teaches children to think productively and provides them with study procedures that will facilitate learning when they become adults. The curriculum includes a program of self study that requires almost no teacher interaction. This unique curriculum will save you hours of teaching time each day and will give your students an opportunity to develop superior knowledge and superb life-long study habits.
In 1988, Laurelee Robinson, Dr. Robinson’s wife, and also a scientist, had accumulated several filing cabinets filled with teacher-based home school materials from many different sources. She was actively schooling their children – Zachary age 12, Noah, age 10, Arynne age 8, Joshua age 6, and Bethany age 6. Matthew, age 16 months, was not yet in school.
Then, in a sudden illness lasting less than 24 hours, Laurelee Robinson died. With responsibility for his wife’s work as well as his own, Dr. Robinson was not able to utilize most of the home school materials she had gathered. These materials required a teacher.
Moreover, this was done using specific, exceptionally high quality books and study methods that he knew would prepare the children for outstanding university performance.
Using techniques that he and his most accomplished colleagues use in their own work, Dr. Robinson’s primary goals were to teach the children to think effectively, to learn independently, and to be well prepared with the basic skills and knowledge that must be learned early in life.
