Get Students to Dress the Part at Your Poetry Cafe Opening

By Beth Newingham on May 2, 2012
  • Grades: 3–5

The beatnik culture of the 1950s and early 1960s that is often associated with poetry readings at coffee shops also had its own fashion. In honor of that culture, we encourage students to at least wear jeans and black t-shirts at our Poetry Cafe. Sunglasses and berets are optional if students have access to such accessories.
