    Writing a paragraph

    I have to write a paragraph for class and my teacher is highly unavailable . I was wondering if it needed a title. Because he said essays must have a title. But I don't know about paragraphs, he didn't specify.

    Re: Writing a paragraph

    When I say my teacher is highly unavailable means he doesn't return my calls, never provided me an email and doesn't have adequate office hours. There isn't class next week so I can't get a hold of him for 2 weeks. I need help and clarification to complete my assignment.

    I don't think anybody here can tell you what your teacher wants.

    Re: Writing a paragraph

    You're right my teacher is quite droll. He should be more clear. In my syllabus he says "review comma usage in the Fiat Lux". I looked it up and I still don't know what he means

    Re: Writing a paragraph

    As far as I can determine, Fiat Lux is a poem that can be found on the Internet. If that is the assignment, I would do that. In this case, I would provide a title: Comma Usage in Fiat Lux.

    Re: Writing a paragraph

    Does a paragraph require or deserve a title? Should it be treated as an essay?

    Re: Writing a paragraph

    You cannot say "highly unavailable"
    You can say: My teacher not available most of the time. My teacher is very inaccessible. My teacher is very difficult to get.

    not a teacher

    Re: Writing a paragraph

    It's Latin for "let there be light". I'm assuming he's referring to the text book or the back of the Dictionary. Nonetheless his instruction is cryptic.

    Re: Writing a paragraph

    A paragraph could have a title. That does not make it an essay.
