Fountainhead #1

Please, respond to the following as you see Keating and what you believe motivates him to do what he does. Does he truly aspire to be a successful architect or is there something else?

You will only respond once this time. Please, think deeply and really consider your answer.

First Blog in RHS English III Honors

Today, we start utilizing the technology available to us. You will be required to blog at least twice per week. You will need to respond to something I put out there for you and then to respond to someone else's response. Let me remind you that anyone with the blog address can view your responses. Don't put anything terribly personal in your responses; limit your responses to the text. Have fun and think outside of the box.
