my essay is about 500 words
Hi Chaya Censor,
While this is a Global Community and there are many knowledgeable people in here, we are not able to help you with specific questions that could be answered by your teacher. Please, contact him/her and see if you're allowed to do that!
Hi, Chaya Censor and Welcome to the Canvas Community! Lucas is absolutely right in that this is a question you'll need to direct to your instructor (How do I send a message to a user in a course in the Inbox as a student?).
I will chime in here with my personal experience. When I was teaching, I set a firm 250-300 word limit on certain assignments, and that was deliberate; the restriction was designed to guide students toward being able to write a short, clear, and well-organized paragraph that gets to the point quickly with a one-line introduction (thesis), a sentence or two to support the thesis, and a quick conclusion that wraps up the points made in the body. Don't be surprised if your instructor deducts points for submissions that exceed the length stated in the instructions. I included this in the rubric for the assignment as well as the assignment instructions, so you could check to see if a rubric accompanies the assignment, and if so, what it states about the length.
