Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Scrambled Eggs: Write a Defensive Statement
In the chapter, Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Scrambled Eggs by Donald J. Sobol, Encyclopedia needs to defend himself. Often when a person is accused of doing something wrong, they are able to make a statement defending themselves. This document provides an example of a written defensive statement and asks students to write a paragraph which Encyclopedia might have written as a defensive statement for himself. It encourages students to analyze a situation, use higher order thinking, and strengthen their writing skills.
