But the history students of the future won't. How about "Administration of horror"?

As a student of history, I say it is totally irrelevant about names. That being said, I am merely bitter about being made to memorize various Italian names, such as...Partito Nazionale Fascista.

What about "Pointless Throning of Administrative Errors"?

The first thing I noticed was that you actually seem to know how to head your paper in proper MLA format. I am such a teacher.

Okay, something else to add to the thread...um...another conversation with a student (same initial, but a different kid). (Sorry, most of my stuff is verbal communication rather than written.)

Students were working on skits. C came up to me and said, "Okay, this is going to be a weird question, but which way is west in this room?"

Me: (not wanting to take the time to figure out when the sun is where) "I have no idea, sorry."

C: "Oh, that's okay. Wait - do you know which way is north?"

My system is similar

I'm in the Canadian Catholic School system (that does NOT mean I'm Catholic!), and it's different in some instances, but it's pretty much the same as every other North American system

example:

Kyle Beckett
Mr. M Harman

I could explain it better if you want, but that's the basic idea.

Well, that shut me up.

In our backward little English school, we do not use any heading. We hand in the piece of work and spend half of the next lesson helping the teacher figure out who's is who's. (Mine's always the one with the doodles).

But...yeah...what is MLA heading? *Is curious*

Modern Language Association. It's one of two organizations that has established standards for formatting written work (among other things). The other is APA, American Psychological Association, which I *think* is used mainly for graduate work and beyond - MLA is used, in the US at least, as the standard for everything up to that point. (It's possible that there are certain fields of undergraduate work that require the use of APA rather than MLA, but the division I've experienced is what I've posted. Also, it sometimes depends on one's professors as to which format is expected.)

APA includes "American" in its title, so I'm assuming its use is restricted to the US. And since those of you who aren't from the US are indicating a lack of familiarity with MLA, I'm guessing the same about it.

In science, we tend to write research papers and not essays, and the standards we follow vary from journal to journal. The American Chemical Society has a template, the Royal Society of Chemistry has a different template, and Elsevier has a third.

The title specifically involves:

Student Name
Mr./Mrs./Ms Teacher'slastname
Class
Date of writting. (or is it due date? Don't remember.)

That would've been a bugger for me when I was at school. I almost *never* handed things in on time...

What a lovely way of appellating people. I see that Borg diplomacy is up to it's usual standard

I could, but that would have required effort.

Not really. Just put a different date.
