In this note-taking exercise, students are required to accomplish two tasks: first, they are to define each of the words in everyday English; then, they are required to relate each word to a story from Greek mythology. There are thirty-five words and phrases (e.g., chaotic, jovial, panacea, tantalising, volcano, etc.) in this activity. This exercise is generic in nature and can be supplemented by a wide range of dictionaries, books and on-line sources. Over the years it has proven to be useful in many English and Social Sciences courses. An answer key has been included.
