Edison’s Annual Poetry Coffee House

20160414_144336The students and teachers at Edison Middle School take April’s National Poetry Month very seriously.  They take it so seriously, in fact, that they transformed a classroom into a Poetry Coffee House—complete with a student-created backdrop, lava lights, and treats.  The entire seventh grade attended the “Coffee House” to share original poems with one another.
In the tradition of the “Beatniks” of the 1950’s, students were encouraged to replace conventional applause with snapping and shouts of, “Cool, Daddy-O!” Also, following the “Beatnik” style of dress, everyone—including teachers and guests, were asked to dress in black.  This practice allows the audience to focus on the words of the poet presenting, rather than becoming distracted by an outward appearance.
