Dear Fair Housing Lady: Is There a Fair Housing Test?

| October 24, 2013 | 2 Comments

Dear Fair Housing Lady,

I just discovered your blog….thank you! Do you have or know of a test that I can use with my staff? Thank you again.

 

I am very pleased that you have found the DFHL blog – welcome!  Tests can be intimidating (think about the doctor saying, “We need to run some tests”), but games are fun, so may I offer for your consideration this Fair Housing Factoids Word Search.  The answers to the questions can be found up, down and diagonally.  Have at it (or, as I suspect, you are going to have some others “have had it”).

      Dear FHL,

      Aaaaggghhh! I am still not finding one of the answers from the Fair Housing Factoids Word Search you published. I am getting soooo frustrated. Please, pretty please, will you share the answers?

      With anticipated appreciation,

      Puzzle Lover

      Dearest Puzzle Lover,

      You have asked so nicely and earnestly to have the Fair Housing Factoids Word Search answers – how could I not oblige? My goal was not to frustrate my readers (well, it wasn’t my main goal – LOL); my main goal was to create a learning opportunity.

      So the answers you were looking for (and the questions that generated the search) follow herewith. If you wonder about (or disagree with, if you dare) the answers, reach back out. I might be able to share a teachable moment with you.

      Sincerely as always,

      FHL
