You are linking it correctly, however all tags need an ending tag. For example, to properly link the shouts.js you would need to do this

     <script src="shouts.js"></script>

After that if you wish to add more scripts it would need to be between the two tags. The way you have it now, there is only one ending tag for three different scripts which would cause an error.

When I say in-between the two tags I don't mean in between the shouts.js tags I mean new tags before or after that. Let me know if you can understand my ramblings.
