Major assignments involve a lot of different factors: you need to understand the project, do research and plan time for writing and editing in your busy schedule.
The UTSC Assignment Planner is a great resource for this: it helps break down common projects into stages, providing links from the libraries and writing centres to help you meet your deadlines. Learning strategists can help you make a customized plan to get work done in time for all of your deadlines, and to find ways to manage the stress of these requirements.
U of T libraries offer more than just the texts you need: they have research guides, offer advice on how to find resources, and have guides on how to cite the materials you’re using. And first-year students have a personal librarian who can give them individual support in answering research questions.
The writing centres can also help in crafting and structuring a research essay: check out their resources and make an appointment before the deadline so that you can put their advice to good use!
