the grade 10 literacy test: TVOntario's Eureka! Ask a Teacher
(Toronto, Oct. 02, 2001)
The all-important standardized grade 10 literacy test is just around the comer!
TVOntario's Eureka! Ask a Teacher interactive Web site
provides practice questions and walks students trough the grammar and literacy issues
covered by the test, such as spelling, sentence structure, and essay writing. The site is
an easy and fun way for students to learn, assess how ready they are, or review what they
know. Students who do not own a computer can use Eureka! Ask a teacher at
their local libraries.
In addition to help with
literacy, students in all grades can find teachers trained to answer their homework

a chalkboard in the classroom.
Unlike other tutorial Web
sites, Eureka! Ask a Teacher provides direct access to a teacher, is completely
free, is specifically tailored to the Ontario curriculum, and features no commercial
