About Mr. Crary:  
My name is Sean Crary and I am the 5th Grade social studies teacher here at Heritage Middle School.  This is my 2nd year at Heritage and third year overall teaching. I graduated from Illinois State University in 2015 with a degree in middle level education.  Before that, I spent my first two years of college at Saint Xavier University playing college basketball.  I grew up in the Munster, Indiana before moving to Crown Point for my high school years.  I am a person with many interests and wish to provide my students with a unique and interactive class experience.  

About This Class:  
In this class, we will study the early American civilizations, the prominent Native American tribes, the age of exploration, early colonial settlements, the characteristics of the original 13 colonies, the Revolutionary War, and the constitutional convention.  During all of these chapters, we will be completing assignments, taking tests, and working on projects.  One thing that we focus on heavily throughout the year is primary sources.  The students will do several activities where they analyze primary sources before making assertions with document evidence.   Materials and resources will be posted here in the coming days.
