Many teachers ask students to dress formally when presenting their declamations in class. This is part of a long-standing Boston Latin School tradition. You do not need to purchase a special, new outfit for declamation! If you don't already own or cannot borrow suitable clothing, please reach out to Ms. Callum or Ms. Harari who will help you find clothing to make you feel pulled together and confident. While your teacher may have specific requirements, here are some general guidelines.
