Hello, I have been assigned by my AP US History teacher an assignment that I'm finding some difficulty recovering some of the required information. The assignment on my syllabus reads as follows:
"Develop a chart explaining the financing, motivation for founding, and political, social, and economic organization of each area: (a) the plantation colonies; (b) New England; (c) the middle colonies. Include a definition of "joint stock," "proprietary," and "Royal" or "Charter" colonies, the degree of self government and extent of participation, economic base, laor, opportunities for social and political mobility, education, etc. What elements did all these colonies have in common? What major differences existed? What accounts for the differences?"
Most of the information I've already found such as the financing, motivation for founding, economic base, and education. However, ANY help on any of these issues would be helpful. My answers may be wrong so I'm open for a different thoughts. Thanks in advance!
