Welcome to Sinks' Digital Portfolio!

Sinks as a Pokeman Trainer

This portfolio represents the "hub" of the classes I teach at Crater BIS. A list of courses and their respective agendas are found in the left navigation column.

Yearbook

This class designs and produces the Crater Constellation yearbook. Students develop skills in photography, graphic design, page layout and organization, and interviewing. Students must be willing to spend outside of class on a weekly basis taking photos at sports and academic activities.

English III/IV – Block Name TBD

A brand new course this year in BIS will integrate English, economics/government, graphic and web design, and "making stuff." We'll start the year off by examining what it means to be an "outlier."

Crater School of Business (CSB)

The School of Business is another unique program within the school of BIS. The course integrates multiple subjects such as English, world studies, economics, marketing, web design, and business. We accomplish this by using business concepts as a focus, and utitlizing the skills learned in the above subject areas as our tools. We demand a lot of our students, but by the time they leave our program, they are prepared for the rigors of college and are well on their way to entering the professional marketplace. To learn more, visit the CSB website.

Mini Courses

Writing Tutorial

Writing Tutorial is designed to provide students with a more personalized and hands-on experience in completing the requirements for the state writing exam. Students will utilize essential organizational, grammatical, and revisional strategies to complete at least two writing samples. The goal for each student is to bank two passing writing samples based on the Oregon Writing Standards.

Honors English

Honors English is a course offered as a supplement to Junior and Senior English to earn college credit. Students taking this course will be expected to read additional literature including short stories, essays, poems, and books, as well as write additinal essays. Please note, this is not an extra English credit. See the Handbook for more details.

Creative Writing

Explores writing poetry, short-fiction, and creative non-fiction. Students will write a number of different pieces and share their work with their classmates, reflect on the writing process, provide and receive constructive feedback, and polish one piece of writing to be displayed. Please note, this is not an extra English credit.
