If you were enrolled in a Humanities course 400 years in the future, what would your curriculum entail regarding the 21st century. In essence, what would you study and why from our current time period. In essence, how do the Humanities exhibit themselves in our current culture and why are they worth studying?

Remember that the article entitled "I'm Christian, unless you're Gay" needs to be annotated and notated, using all your colors. I ask that you have 5-7 annotations/notations/page.

In addition, please compile a list of 7-10 questions regarding concerns you had involving the article! THINK!

Please let me know if you have any questions!
Good Luck
