example of essays from the Phoenix website:

What is Kolb’s Experiential Learning Model?

According to Kolb, “Knowledge results from the combination of grasping experience and transforming it.” In his model, there are four distinct segments to learning:
  • Description of Concrete experience
  • Reflections
  • Generalizations/Principles/Theories
  • Testing and Application

Applying Kolb’s Model to Your Essay

When you write your experiential essay, you are required to use each of Kolb’s four steps to describe each of the required subtopics. For instance, if you have developed a nutrition or health plan with your health care provider, and have maintained that health plan, you may want to write the essay on “Human Nutrition and Health”. You must address these three subtopics in your 3,000 to 4,500 word essay:
  • Subtopic 1: Explain the physiological role of protein, fat, and carbohydrates in maintaining health.
  • Subtopic 2: Explore the physiological role of vitamins and minerals in disease prevention.
  • Subtopic 3: Discuss major nutritional guidelines to decrease heart disease, cancer, and osteoporosis.
  • Subtopic 4: Analyze modifications from national recommended guidelines you have made in your diet and the rationale for those modifications.
  • Subtopic 5: Explore challenges US citizens encounter in attaining sound nutrition.
  • Subtopic 6: Discuss current fad diets and the hazards they bring to overall health and wellness.
