“Shut Up and Listen!” By Tim Hammett

This digital story was created by Tim Hammett as a member of Merrill Watrous’s EN 201 class. His fellow student Sarah had this to say about his story, “As an extrovert I had never noticed that the world caters to our unique skill of logorrhea. Why must people constantly verbally convey their thoughts verbally in order to be heard? I keep thinking back to Merrill’s video and her line, “If you tend to speak up, talk less.’ I agree that I need to leave more free space for the introverted to feel safe in their thoughts and not pressured out of their comfort zones! 1/3rd are introverts and their silence will not go unheard, in my class, or the classes any other teachers out there watching this video!”

    Tim, I really like how you are pointing out to everyone, we are not all the same. There are people who love working in groups and people who hate it. I love how you said, ” i will not be quiet on this subject.”

    I really liked your story Tim. I know I have felt lost and alone in a classroom quite frequently. There are introverts and extroverts and we as teachers need to find time for both. “I will not be quiet on this subject” is a great line. Wonderfully done.
