The Interdisciplinary Unit for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transsexual Awareness Week brings together a series of subjects to help raise awareness about discrimination, LGBT rights, and general information about the LGBT community. The lesson plans are created for math, science, history and English. The lessons are targeted towards 11th grade students. The week will occur from February 23, 2009 to February 29, 2009, and it will culminate in Transaction Day, a day focused on dialogue about gender roles in schools. In our school, the 11th grade students will hold an informational fair for the school community to find out more about LGBT rights through the years.

The Unit is composed of work from Susan Gillmor, Samantha Rabinowicz, Joe Gels, Alli Schubert, and Jane Horstmann.
