In short stories, we learned how to identify different parts of a story and the themes in the story. I enjoyed reading the short stories and found them quite interesting. In novel studies, I enjoyed reading the books and afterward having debates about topics in the book. 

It was really fun when we did impromptu debates because we learned how to prepare a small speech on any topic in just a few minutes.
