Class groups use a graphic organizer to respond to questions and record impressions as they examine sections of the Charter of Carolina, the document that gave control of the colony to eight Lords Proprietors. After completing their study of the document, individuals then assume the identity of one of the Lords Proprietors and, writing in his voice, craft a letter to King Charles of England thanking him for the grant. Although some less-experienced readers may be challenged by the antiquated language of the Charter, readers can access background information and annotations by moving their mouse over highlighted text.
