Quiet for President
By: Sarah Scott
I read the time for kid about Quiet and my topic is about about a boy named Davis and introverts. Davis is a very quiet and is always reading or doing math. In eighth grade his cousin Jessica tells him he should run for class president. He told her that she was crazy. Davis was the leader of a math team, but only friends knew his leadership so he was worried what his classmates would think. He didn't want the attention of being class president because he loved to stay away from that stuff. He had to go out of his comfort zone.
Loud or Quiet
David was a introvert. Introverts are people who like to be alone or thrive when it's quiet. On the other hand there are extroverts, people who love attention and being social. They thrive when there is excitement and get bored when there is none. It is fine to be one or the other, there is no problem with being both.
Quiet is the new cool
Davis was worried about running against a very popular girl. He had to go out of his comfort zone and ask classes what they wanted or liked. The girl only promised dances and talent shows. He promised stuff like siting where ever you want in the cafe' and a tutoring program. He got this feed back from the students. He won and was class president. The girls strength was social skills. He didn't have those strengths so he used his own and kids wanted a leader who could get over his discomfort. This is why being quiet can be a good thing. It can help you learn to use you strengths in different things.
This chapter is about my skills. I am sort of both introvert and extrovert. I like to be alone, but I do like to socialize. It can be hard to get out of your comfort zone. I Used to be very loud. I had to learn to be quiet and keep to myself. It was hard. I was so talkative, but over time I learned that being quiet has it's advantages. You can get more work done and read for longer. It can be hard to talk to other people sometimes if I feel quiet, but I use both my skills so I can be the best I can be.
