Award-winning journalist Phil Lipof, an ABC news anchor and journalist, visited Silas Wood Sixth Grade Center today and made a presentation to the students and teachers.

Silas Wood’s teachers taught a lesson recently titled, "The Power of Journalism." The lesson and conversations were motivating, exciting, and highly engaging. Students were asked to brainstorm a list of "perks" of the job, which led to great discussions. Students also read an article about journalism, and each team created five questions that they were going to ask Mr. Lipof during the assembly.

Mr. Lipof gave a brief introduction about himself and his experiences, including a special behind-the-scenes video he made for the students.  He then conducted a question-and-answer session, wading deep into the crowd of students to give everyone a chance to ask his or her question.

Mr. Lipof captivated Silas Wood’s students and staff with many stories that kept everyone wanting more.
