    University of Minnesota Assignment Calendar
    This is a gem for organization a writing or research project. It is my favorite site. The student plugs in the starting date, the due date, the subject area and the program calculates every step of the project and places it into a series of steps with the date for each and tells the student exactly what is to be done. Plus, it presents links to offer explanations and suggestions on the particular parts of each step. I believe it is the most valuable study aid on the internet.

    It is the simplest thing to use. Go to the site and plug in a due date and subject and see what happens. It is amazing.
