Open your essay. Ctrl-A to select all.

Tools Language...

Make sure that "Do not check spelling or grammar" is unchecked (not just
gray).

Press F7.

This can happen when Word thinks your text is in a language for which
you do not have proofing tools installed. To fix it, open the document
where this problem occurs, press Ctrl+A to select all of the text, and
click on Tools | Language | Set Language | choose your language |
uncheck the "Detect language automatically" and "Do not check spelling
or grammar" boxes | Default | OK. Then press F7 to rerun spellcheck.
