Calendar scripting to create a generic Week 1-10 structure and then mapping the generic to actual calendar dates. What tools can I use for this?

The scenario is this: I'm creating a 10-week generic course calendar (like a syllabus, for example) where there are always things that occur at the same points in certain weeks (assignments, tests, deadlines). But because the course start- and end-dates are always different, there are no actual dates attached--all assignments, for example, are listed as 'Week 4, Day 4' or 'Week 6.'
So what tools can I use to create generic calendars and then input a start date and have the generic calendar (with all the mileposts, deadlines, etc. in the generic calendar) map onto a real calendar with actual dates? I also want to be able to save the generic calendars so I can redo this process later when the course runs again.
