Take no more than 10 minutes to quickly surf their website http://www.eqao.com/Students/Secondary/10/10.aspx?Lang=E&gr=10&Aud=Students&App=Students. You want to just get a sense of what is there for future reference.



When you return, go to 0.1 - EQAO Website Discussion and respond to the following question: “Imagine that one of your friends asked you about the EQAO Website and whether or not she or he should check it out.  What would you tell them to do?”
