Redefining the Dumbass
This three-scene play was written as a response to James Gee's The Anti-Education Era: Creating Smarter Students Through Digital Learning. It is inspired by the creative heuristic "red/read," which I interpreted as Red Forman from That '70s Show. The script focuses on Red's constant criticism of Eric's obsession with video games and other "nerdy" stuff. Red is always hard on Eric for being into many of the things Gee describes as tools to "get smarter."
