After placing the start and end dates into boxes below, the Assignment Planner will create a to-do list with suggested dates for completion following a generative writing process.
With those dates, the Assignment Planner will provide links to resources from both the Writing Center and KU Libraries. Simply enter the date that you intend to begin working on the assignment and the date that the assignment will be due in the boxes below. A plan will be generated using these dates as guides.
If you have any questions regarding use of the Assignment planner, please email us at [email protected]
Write your assignment using your map or plan to guide you.
Try using linking words (outlined above) to signal to your reader whether you are talking about similar ideas, whether you are comparing and contrasting, and so on.
The direction that your thinking is taking in the essay should be very clear to your reader.
Be sure to plan ahead and schedule an appointment early in your course.
This planner is based on the Research Project Calculator developed by Minitex.
While many students skip over the planning stage because of time constraints, a good plan makes every phase in assignment writing easier and faster.
