sign nononofishIn Advanced Composition, we play a version of Pictionary to help us master our course vocabulary.

As soon as the student who drew this turned around, her group yelled: Fallacies!  That was the correct response. The rest of the class and I fell silent, stunned.

(The fish represents the Red Herring fallacy, but the three no symbols were emblematic of my reminders to avoid fallacious reasoning.)


  1. reminds me of my husband playing these types of games with his best friend! the two of them were buddies for 10+ years and were able to read each other’s minds by then.


  2. Must be pretty satisfying to see (1) your class so throughly understand a concept (2) see proof that they pay attention!
